Daryl Hall & John Oates Live at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre Friday, March 1 at 8 pm

Daryl Hall and John Oates, the number one selling duo in music history, are coming to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre to perform on Friday, March 1 at 8 pm. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 11 at 10 am.

Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have Daryl Hall and John Oatesbecome such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters, Gym Class Heroes, who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.

Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, their debut album Abandoned Luncheonette, produced by Arif Mardin, yielded the Top 10 single She’s Gone, which also went to #1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, War Babies, (produced by Todd Rundgren).  They asked to be released from their contract with Atlantic to sign with RCA, a tenure that would catapult the duo to international superstardom.

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 five Top 10 singles: Sara Smile, One on One, You Make My Dreams, Say It Isn’t So and Method of Modern Love.

Daryl also wrote the H&O single Everytime You Go Away. Singer Paul Young scored a number-one hit with a cover of that song in 1985.

That same year, Daryl and John participated in the historic We Are the World session as well as closing the Live Aid show in Philadelphia.

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.

Daryl Hall’s latest project is a multi-award-winning monthly web series (and nationally syndicated TV show), Live from Daryl’s House (www.livefromdarylshouse.com). “It was a light bulb moment,” he says of the show’s genesis. “I’ve had this idea about just sitting on the porch or in my living room, playing music with my friends and putting it up on the Internet.”  Live from Daryl’s House is also aired weekly on the Palladia Channel every Thursday at 11 pm EST/8 pm PST.

Past episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Jason Mraz, Joe Walsh, Booker T and the MGs, Blind Boys of Alabama, Rob Thomas, Train, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Keb Mo, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Nick Waterhouse, Nikki Jean, Dirty Heads, Chiddy Bang, Rumer, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Allen Stone, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

In April of 2011, John Oates released his solo album Mississippi Mile on Elektra Records.  People magazine gave the album three out of four stars.  “[Mississippi Mile] has the opportunity to reach across the board – and that’s a winning formula.” – Nashville Lifestyles.

Daryl released his solo album, Laughing Down Crying on Verve Records on September 27, 2011.  The album has received a lot of critical acclaim from The Huffington Post, Spinner and Pop Matters, who said: “With the songs that make up this fine collection of American soul and pop music, Hall proves that with the pen and at the mic, his voice is more than capable of reaching the depths and heights of emotional truth.”

Most recently as a duo, Daryl Hall & John Oates released their first box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall & John Oates.  The box set marks the first comprehensive multi-CD, multi-label deluxe box set compilation ever assembled from their entire career’s work, four CD’s containing 74 tracks (16 of them previously unreleased).

With the fortieth anniversary of their first album, Whole Oats, 2012 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.

Reserved tickets priced at $79.50, $59.50, $49.50 and $34.50 will go on sale this Friday, January 11th at 10am at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box offices.
