Detroit May 20th. Not what we expected. They seemed disconnected, and it felt like the Daryl Hall show with his musician jam session friends rather than sharing the spotlight with John Oates. The cameras and spotlight were literally on Hall and other band members more than John Oates, was like Oates was an afterthought. We were a little disappointed. Yes, long solos and and a lot of artistic license with some songs made for us ready for them to get to the next song, thinking "maybe this next one will be one on their greatest hits"? Train was awesome and saved the concert. Train was better and totally rocked out a version of Led Zeppelin's "Heart Breaker" and Tom Petty's "Free Fallin" as a pleasant surprise. Train made the show worthwhile. Train connected with the audience and fans while while H&O appeared to be going through the motions. At one time, Oates said something like "it's good to be back at "Pine Knob" with you Detroit". Which received Boo's from the crowd-WRONG VENUE!

Hall & Oates (H&O), we're not at their best last night in Denver. They did not play enough of their hits and when they did they strung them out or they had very long solo's and even longer solo's by their band mates, which I did not come for. To many new or songs on old albums that were clrearly not their best hits. At times Hall sang like he had been drinking. First time seeing Train, great. Denver is a great placid to go to concertsand this venue was up to par.good seats this particular concern is who you could bring parents to for H&O and kids to for Train. I wish I had know this was going to be a pre show at which I would have not gone as early and gone somewhere else to eat then at the venue which is overpriced and not great food

We had great seats in a day full of fantastic music at the Mann Center but were sorely disappointed by the main act. Hall and Oates clearly hate each other. They came on stage without even acknowledging each other and basically had separate performances. The lack of energy brought down the hall. We were so disappointed - we left early!

I have never seen Hall & Oates live, but with all the hits we thought the show would be great. I was disappointed. Sound mix was off, feedback was heard regularly and Daryl Hall made no adjustment to recognize his voice is not what it use to be. Many of his contemporaries travel with complementary back up vocals and work as a team, with the backup singers taking the high notes. He did some weird vocal things. Squeeze was with Hall & Oates and completely upstaged Hall & Oates. They rocked!

Was lucky enough to score tickets in the 4th row and was excited to see Hall and Oates up close and personal. Huge disappointment. Hall has lost his voice. What the entire night sounded like was a poor Hall and Oates tribute band. Sound was terrible which looks like was a problem at other performances. Whatever the problem was it needs to be fixed and fixed fast. I don't understand? His voice is aged and shot and the back up vocals not much better. The entire tempo of their set was in slow motion. Got the vibe of a funeral. Yeah they played a lot of their hits but it was 8 musicians not performing together as well as the sound crew. Darryl multiple times was motioning for the sound guy to expand the sound. never happened. Darryl couldn't get the microphone to stay in place while on keyboards even after stage hand came out at least 2X's during the show. I think they should have apologized which was obviously to them and most of the people there a poor performance. Oh well.

opener Squeeze was great, the kick drum volume literally drowned out the whole band & ruined it. we were 11 row center. front of house guy should be fired becuase it was exactly the same for Hall & Oates. Also Daryl Hall was visibly & verbally annoyed the whole show at his monitor mix & his monitor guy. both bands played great though....

The sound was awful!!!! Wouldn't waste your money. Spent 500 on two tickets sitting in row 4 and instantly you could tell it was going to be bad. Thankfully squeeze sounded amazing!!!!!
