HALL & OATS

Very disappointed with the vocals of both Monahan & Hall. Monahan seemed off beat with the band and his highs were almost non-existent. To make matters worse he attempted to sing Black Dog by Led Zeppelin. If you can't reach the highs of your own songs don't be stupid enough to try and hit highs of one of the greatest male Rock singers ever (bad attempt. After this attempt he was finished for the rest of Train's set. Darrell Hall was not much better. He was off beat w/ mediocre highs. Interestingly Monahan came out and sang a few songs with Hall and his vocals were great (go figure). I rated the performance 3 stars because "it’s Hall & Oats" arguably the most successful ROCK Duo ever. I go to a lot of concerts and I have grown accustom to bands of my generation playing very précis Eagles, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Deaf Leopard, Rush, Creed, Nickelback, U2, Journey, etc. I expected Hall & Oats to be great and they weren’t. That said I did have fun but once is enough

TIME TO RETIRE

We came to see H@O and hear all of their hits. Train opened, and I only knew one of their songs or so I thought. Wow! What a performance. After Train finished their set II thought I’m glad I’m not Hall and Oates waiting to go on stage because how do you top that ? I give 5 stars to Train and 2 stars to H&O. It quickly became apparent that Hall and Oates are out of touch and not even worthy of being openers for Train. Like a punch drunk boxer who doesn’t know when to say, “It’s over!” For Hall and Oates, it’s time. Thanks for the memories.

NOW I KNOW WHY THE LUNCHEONETTE WAS ABANDONED

My rating reflects the 4-5 stars I would give Pat Monahan and Train and the 1-2 stars I would give Hall and Oates. Others have commented on the sound problems for Hall and Oates. I have been to at least 50 ACC shows and it was the worst mix I have heard. Not the fault of the ACC because Train was crystal clear and largely spectacular. I can only assume that the sound mix for Hall and Oates was to try to mask vocal deficiencies due to not so graceful aging. If unintentional, then Hall & Oates should get new people. Given that some people in the bottom section paid top dollar (me being one of them) while other people bought much cheaper seats and were moved down to the bottom level, I think some Ticketmaster vouchers should be offered to those who paid top dollar, given the second half. We left with 4 songs to go even though we knew we were walking out on 4 very big Hall and Oates hits. It pains me to write this because I have loved Hall and Oates ever since I heard Sara Smile.

TRAIN DOES NOT DISAPPOINT

Went to see Train and Hall n Oates at ACC last night. Seats were fantastic. The talented Kandace Springs opened, next came Train. This was my second time seeing Train perform. Although I LOVE TRAIN, the sound just wasn't right. Maybe it is the acoustics in ACC, maybe their sound engineer, at least Patrick Monahan's voice carried them through. He was engaging, the Zeppelin song was fantastic (WOW), and the Tom Petty tribute was perfect. Then Hall n Oats came on stage, and, I was at best underwhelmed. They sang many of their classics and the crowd wanted to rock along, but something was off. Can't put my finger on it. Still glad I went.

TRAIN SAVED THE DAY, HALL & OATS - NOT SO MUCH.

Opening act - Kandace Springs - the girl can sing and play a piano! Nice three piece band! Great job, Kandace! Train - WOW! Got the crowd on their feet! Lights, Stage, Sound - all first class. Patrick Monahan did a wonderful job interacting with the crowd! Hall and Oats - not sure if they should continue to tour after this. Could being on the road is a bit hard for them to handle. My problem was John Oats looked so bored and Dayal Hall was trying to save the night. Another issue I had was the selection of hits they played. And in one case, I had never heard that song before. I hate to say it, but I came to hear the classics.... all the hits, and maybe one new song. So - Train saved the day for me.

HALL & OATES AT PNC ARTS CENTER

August 13th The concert occurred during hot as hell weather. We thought that may have affected the sound--maybe not according to reviewers who enjoyed the concert on other dates. We loved seeing the John and Darryl together, but the sound, tune lineup, and lack of touchy feely between the two made it disappointing to us.

DISAPPOINTING

I gave this show (in Saratoga Springs NY) 3 stars for the solid band and graphics. The vocals were sub par. Daryl has lost his range, he is mid 70s now and perhaps should have allowed John sing more lead as his voice seemed stronger. Daryl was pitchy at times and kept waving his hands indicating to his sound mixers his displeasure. Volume was too high. I had seen them a long time ago and it’s clear they aren’t nearly as strong vocally. Very little interaction between the two of them, felt bad for John Oates as he seemed more like a backup vocal than partner. Squeeze was awesome and perhaps should have headlined. Strong vocals and tight band. Sadly, I will most likely not waste my money seeing them again.
