LEGENDS AT PNC
First time out of my “cage” since Covid hit. BEST NIGHT EVER! A fan for 30+ years and the boys did not disappoint. Being 75 never looked so good! In awe of the passion, talent and love these two exude from the stage. BRAVO guys! 👏

HALL & OATES DIDN'T DISAPPOINT; TRAIN STAYED ON TRACK
At Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. on August 7, I was a little worried during the first two songs, as it seemed Darrel Hall's voice was tired, but then he hit his stride. When he moved to the piano for "Sarah Smile," he brought down the house. Strong finish with a wonderful encore wrapped up a great evening. Collaboration with Train's lead singer was a highlight. Train was great, but the microphone for the vocals could have been turned up more, as the sound mix was off all evening. Kandace Springs has pipes, as well.

TRAIN WAS FANTASTIC
I would get tickets to see Train again in heartbeat. Went in loving Train, came away an even bigger fan!!!!! Hall and Oats felt like a Daryl Hall Show, not impressed. And the band was so loud the when it was a John Oats song you couldn't hear him.

TRAIN SHOULD HAVE HEADLINED
I grew up listening to Hall & Oates and have great respect for bands who stand the test of time with their songs still playing on the airwaves. However, John Oates was more or less a backup singer to a very (tired? drunk? stoned? old?) Daryl Hall. What's more, is Hall took way too many tangents from the original lyrics/style, even talking instead of singing. Too many times I felt I couldn't sing along, which was a bit disappointing. Again, still have much respect for the duo, but I think it's time to hang up their touring hat. Train, on the other hand, was surprisingly AMAZING. Their lead singer, Pat Monahan, was energetic, perfectly on key, and engaging with the audience - pretty funny guy, actually. And to give Hall some credit, he sang Train's Calling All Angels with Pat Monahan and it was fantastic. I don't feel too bad about the whole show not being great...I only spent about $50 per ticket total. So, I got my money's worth for sure. If you're gonna go, go for Train.

TRAIN GREAT H&O NEED NEW STRATEGY
Train was great. Great songs, great stage presence, interesting and fun!I saw hall and Oates in 2010. They were absolutely amazi Hall’s voice was 100%. His voice in Kansas City was 50% at best. He is 71 years old! Give them credit, they had eight musicians on stage, that is expensive.They threw money at the problem instead of being honest. Hall either has dementia or was drunk. If it is the first, just admit it, people won’t mind- Look at Glen Campbell. A better strategy would be to tell the audience that he will sing live to a pre- recorded version so they get their moneys worth. Also, their performance needed some women’s voices, eight man on stage is OK but Trains back up singers would have been helpful. Also, train was very kind to go on tour w with them we all get old and need help. Overall it was a great show, I just felt sorry for Hall and Oats getting older.

TRAIN WAS ON TIME; HALL & OATES, A REFRESHING JOURNEY IN TI
Although my wife and I missed the opening performance of Kandace Springs, we arrived in time to catch 'Train.' From there opening number, "50 Ways to Say Goodbye" to their closing selection, "Drops of Jupiter," they rocked. Patrick Monahan, Train's lead singer, was beautifully engaging and his voice and the band's songs made Sprint Center feel more intimate than it had any right to be. While Hall & Oats are not the singers they used to be (70 years of age will do that to you), they were terrific. What they may have lost in strength of voice, they made up for (in spades) going down memory lane with their catalog of hits. While 'Sara Smile' is still my favorite song from the duo, their rendition of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' had the entire Sprint Center crowd (which was near capacity) on their feet and singing along. By the end of the night, 'Train' gained a new fan in me and Hall & Oates reminded me how sweet it is to listen to 'blue-eyed soul' once again.

HALL & OATES REVIEW
I was disappointed in the performance. They have so many great songs, but they would sing for two minutes and play instruments for four minutes. During some points during the concert it became quite boring. Overall, the night was well worth the cost of tickets by the performance of Train. Music and singing was fantastic.
