Hall & Oates will be going on the road this summer, and they’re taking Squeeze and KT Tunstall along with them. The three acts will play 32 dates across North America beginning May 29 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and ending Sept. 2 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, N.H. Prior to that, Hall & Oates have several standalone shows, including a sold-out night at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 28 and their HoagieNation Festival in their hometown of Philadelphia on May 23.
“I am so excited and jumping for joy with the prospect of this tour with Daryl Hall and John Oates,” Squeeze’s primary lead singer, Glenn Tilbrook, said. “They are the bees knees! I had the pleasure of seeing an awesome show of theirs in Kentucky last year and feel that we are a match made in heaven, to be consummated at every show!”
“I have long been a Hall & Oates fan, and this tour is a real treat, a chance to hear all of those great songs each night,” Tilbrook’s writing and singing partner Chris Difford added. “This is a tour I’m really looking forward to.”
Daryl Hall & John Oates, often referred to as Hall & Oates, are an American pop rock duo formed in 1970 in Philadelphia. Daryl Hall is generally the lead vocalist; John Oates primarily plays electric guitar and provides backing vocals. The two write most of the songs they perform, separately or in collaboration. They achieved their greatest fame from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s with a fusion of rock and roll and rhythm and blues.
