Reader review: Hall & Oates in concert

By March 27, 2013

Follow me on:

Daryl Hall and John Oates started performing together in 1969, and they haven't stopped. They continue to tour and, have released three new studio albums and three live albums just in the past 10 years.

When they first started recording in the early '70s, it took four albums for them to hit their stride and settle into the style that brought them worldwide success -- a fusion of rock and R&B, what Hall & Oates themselves described as rock n' soul.

Earlier this month, About.com Classic Rock reader, Jim Smith booked a seat at a Hall & Oates concert, curious as to how it would compare to the last one he attended, 30+ years ago. READ MORE

I was with Jim at the Hall & Oates concert…I have been sitting next to him for many years as he watches concerts and writes his reviews…and his Hall & Oates review was, frankly, way too nice!!!

Never being quite as much into the many various music genres Jim enjoys on a regular basis, there have been some concerts we have gone to during which I count the minutes till the last song ends. This concert was the only one, however, in over 5 years, during which Jim turned to me and said “We’re leaving.” He was ready to throw rocks…

we love good rock ‘n roll…the Hall & Oates gig at the hardrock was anything but that.

Lauren, I hope next time you won’t be so shy about saying how you really feel about it {;>)
