“I feel a professional responsibility to play the songs that people want to hear,” John Oates says. “They are the songs that have made us who we are”
Daryl Hall and John Oates are hitting the road this spring and summer for a tour of North American amphitheaters and they are bringing Squeeze and KT Tunstall along for the ride.
After a series of sporadic warm-up dates across February, March, and May, the proper tour begins May 29th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and wraps up September 2nd at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire.
“Squeeze are unique, have great songs, and don’t sound like anybody else,” John Oates says. “I’ve been a fan of theirs from the very beginning and our audience is going to love them.”
Daryl Hall feels the same way. “They are great songwriters,” he says. “Their songs are eclectic, yet they have soul. They’re just a great addition to the show.”
The excitement works both ways. “I am so excited and jumping for joy with the prospect of this tour with Daryl Hall and John Oates,” Squeeze’s Glenn Tilbrook says in a statement. “They are the bee’s knees! I had the pleasure of seeing an awesome show of theirs in Kentucky last year, and feel that we are a match made in heaven, to be consummated at every show!”
