TRAIN RULED, HALL AND OATES DROOLED
What can I say that has not been said allready. Hall and Oates sound distorted. Clearly they were trying to mask their vocal deficiencies. To their credit the encore featured stronger vocals showing what they could sound like. However, the earlier set felt like it was phoned in. Daryl kept sipping water and tussling his hair. Fortunately Train saved the day. Train was both engaging and spot on for each song.

"BLUE EYED SOUL"! ... "I CAN GO FOR THAT"! :)
The Hall & Oates concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto was awesome (June 5, 2018)! The musical journey started with Train. Patrick Monahan and the back up singers emitted such a cool, relaxed vibe! Train definitely picked up a new passenger in me because their musical set was hot! What a tight performance and authentic sound! Train had the audience engaged with their interaction throughout their set. When we reached the destination of Hall & Oates, we were not disappointed! Now, I truly appreciate the reason why they were known as, "Blue Eyed Soul"! Darryl's conversation with the audience between songs was jovial in a sweet and shy way. Darryl played the piano beautifully; John's voice was rich; and the saxophonist & the rest of the band were right on! The escapade back to the mid-80s for me with Hall & Oates was amazing! My rating for Hall & Oates' performance? 4 out of 5! If they had performed my favourite song, "One on One", then it would have been a "High 5!! :)

The last time Hall and Oats were in town the concert was disappointing. However, this time it was worth the money to see them. They are getting up there in years, but they still put on a great show. Their backing band was great, sound was great. The performance as a whole was really good.. They did an amazing job. It was a pleasure to hear them play the songs that I remember as a kid and grew up with. Ill go back and see em again when they return.

They need a new sound engineer. Great song selection. Both seemed in good voice. Darryl made hand gestures to his sound guy all night. Very distracting.

We did not go to see Train, but like many others said they were were pretty great! A lot of energy, audience participation and tight sound(plus a Led Zep song to boot) Hall & Oats were a disappointment in sound and their extended versions of 3 minute songs that sounded more like a garage band. I grew up with H&O and still love listening to their library of hits. My overall biggest gripe was their noticeable dislike for one another. Yeah i know they have been together a long time but when the songs you hear remind you a pleasant pasts and the guys singing can't each look at each other, not to mention $100.00(+) ticket prices, I wont see them again
Andrew Swensen from Seattle, Washington
Im not sure if they changed it up but the Seattle show was not bad. Last show on the tour. First ten songs were all super hits except for one. True, Halls range is very limited. The sound was super loud and his voice at times just wasn't good. He's 70. Did you expect him to be jumping around like David Lee Roth? If you stayed, the encore was Kiss on my List/Private Eyes/Rich girl and Dreams come true. All able to sing along. Train was phenomenal. 5 stars to Train. What a show. K S was good, reminded me of Alisha Keys. But that piano solo tho. 4 stars for Kandace. 3 stars to H & O but thats what 70 year olds sound like guys. Fun show.

LOVED TRAIN, HORRIBLE AUDIO MIX FOR H AND O
Like other reviewers have stated the Audio Mix was horrible for the first 4 songs then got dialed in a bit better but the BASS was over driven and and sounded muddy. I couldn't hear the vocals from Oates at all and many of the sax parts were buried under the Over Driven BASS lines. It's hard to believe such a professional tour would have such a bad audio mix engineer. Train on the other hand sounded clear and good and had the audience feeling good.
