Hall & Oates and Train are teaming up for a joint concert tour that will feature the two bands playing together on stage at the end of each show.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Daryl Hall and John Oates are mounting a four-month concert tour with Train that will feature individual sets by each band, followed by a grand finale in which both will perform side by side.
Whether or not this will result in any live mash-ups of their respective hits — “Drops of Maneater” or “Out of Soul Sister Time,” anyone? — remains to be seen. A yet-to-be-announced opening act will be added to the lineup at a later date.
The tour kicks off May 1 at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center and wraps up Aug. 11 at Seattle’s Key Arena. It includes an Aug. 4 show at San Diego State University’s Viejas Arena.
All dates and cities appear below, along with ticket information.
“This is going to be a tour filled with fun as well as great music,” Hall said in a statement released Monday morning. “I love Train, and have a close relationship with Pat Monahan, going back to our ‘Live From Daryl’s House’ show together.”
Monahan was equally effusive, saying: “I’ve known Daryl Hall and John Oates for a few years now, and — after being their fan my entire life — we now get to tour with them and spend time with legends in the world of music. This will be a career highlight for all of us in Train.”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. next Monday, Jan. 29, at ticketmaster.com. Tickets for the San Diego show are priced between $49 and $149.50 each, with VIP packages going for (gulp!) $500, plus service charges.
A pre-sale for Citi card holders begins Tuesday at 10 a.m.
