Hall And Oates Come To The American Airlines Center July 24!!!

  Daryl Hall can’t go for that (no can do.)  One half of ’70s hitmaking duo Hall & Oates sours at the thought of joining the 2018 farewell tour bandwagon like so many others of his generation — Elton John, Paul Simon and Ozzy Osbourne, among them.  In fact, the 71-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer — who just released the first new Hall & Oates single in 15 years called Philly Forget Me Not with special guests Train, before hitting the road together — doesn’t even want to talk about it.    “You know what? I’m sick of talking about people retiring — screw them!” Hall said. “I don’t care about them!”  Alrighty then.     We caught up with Hall down the line from Charleston, S.C., before Hall & Oates play the Air Canada Centre on Tuesday with Train opening.  It’s been 46 years since the first Hall & Oates album in 1972. What keeps you going on the road after all this time?  I enjoy it. I do it ’cause I like it and I have something to say and a bird’s gotta sing. And every time I do it, it’s a little bit different. It keeps it fresh. It keeps me happy. And that’s what I’m all about.  How did you choose Train as openers this time? (Tears for Fears were openers last time).  I really like (Train singer) Pat Monahan I’ve known him for a long time and I think the combo works!!         ​
