LiveNation and Bamp Project welcome Rock and Roll Hall of Famers (and the number one-selling duo in music history) Daryl Hall and John Oates to the Blaisdell Arena. The iconic duo will preform live with special guest Henry Kapono.
Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Hall & Oates are soul survivors in their own right. From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums—’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”
By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the number one-selling duo in music history, a record they still hold today.
On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton. In 2014, Daryl Hall and John Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
