SOUND WAS AWFUL
This is for the Madison Square, Garden show on February 28, 2020. Not sure if the soundman had hearing aids or not but the sound was absolutely horrible. Bass was Way out of proportion to the rest of the band. You could hardly hear Daryl Hall sing nor understand the lyrics, the overall performance was excellent, it was good to see the band back together again. Got to do something with the sound guy before I see them again. Squeeze came on second and they sounded excellent and there performance was outstanding.

A disappointment! The sound was off, Halls voice was not very good, he spent most of the night trying to get the sound crew to get the sound and voice right. They cut the shoe short,they knew they did not sound good. Mr. Hall, Replay this show! Your fans deserve it!!!

HALL AND OATES AT RUOFF
See the previous review from California concert. The sound was absolutely the worst. Many songs droned on endlessly. A total disappointment.

HALL AND OATES ARE TOAST
Daryl Hall should retire, his voice is gone. There must be a rift between the two because there wasn't any interaction. The music was too loud, they didn't play many of their hits and that's what we came to hear. With the encore they played 11 songs!! Most of the songs ended up with a jam session in the middle of the tune. Save yourself the dough. Stay home and listen to them on your lounge chair.

I saw them in the height of their career and had metered my expectations since its been 35+ years. I have been to a number of concerts and this was the worst sound I have ever experienced. It was like having cotton balls in your ears and everything dulled. Granted the vocals aren't as crisp as they once were but they are old and might be expected. Its always heart breaking when you see a favorite and they cant sing to tempo anymore as this was the case. Putting all that aside the sound man needs to change careers. After reading other review of previous shows in the past few years they all say the same thing, Either H&O hangs it up or they get a new sound man, this was awful, painful and made my heart cry. One of my teenage favorites butchered into oblivion. I am shedding a tear now thinking about it. LOL

HALL AND OATES AT RUOFF
The recent concert at Ruoff Center with Hall and Oates/Squeeze was the worst event I’ve ever attended. With over 200 concerts attended over the past 30 years, this was by far the most disappointing. The sound was horrible. Whether this was the fault of Ruoff or the bands, it is nonetheless inexcusable. The lyrics were nearly unrecognizable and the music so muddled that it was annoying at best. We left as the band came back for its encore along with hundreds of other concert goers. We’ve never seen a early mass exodus like that at another concert. At $150/ticket it was complete waste of money.
