After another incredible touring year for Daryl Hall & John Oates, which included such legendary venues as Madison Square Garden and The Forum, they bring their show back to the UK for their first tour since July 2015 and their first European shows since their triumphant sell-out headline set at The O2 for Bluesfest in 2017. KT Tunstall, who will be performing at all four shows, released her acclaimed sixth studio album ‘WAX’ in October and her supporting live shows have been met with huge delight by the critics and fans alike.

Since scoring a worldwide smash with her debut album ‘Eye To The Telescope’ in 2004, which went on to sell over 5 million copies, KT Tunstall has remained at the forefront of UK singer-songwriter talent. In the subsequent decade that followed Tunstall released three critically acclaimed platinum-selling albums (‘Drastic Fantastic’ (2007), ‘Tiger Suit’ (2010) and ‘Invisible Empire//Crescent Moon’ (2013)) cementing the Scottish singer-songwriter’s reputation as a prolific songwriter and mesmerising performer. Following a hiatus, Tunstall returned in 2016 with the first of a trilogy of albums - 'KIN', which was top ten hit that she saw as being her phoenix-from-the-ashes 'spirit' album. The recently released ‘WAX’ is the second album of the trilogy.

Added Daryl on returning to the UK: “I’ve been in and out of the UK for a lot of years and it’s always great to come home.  Can’t wait to play these shows.” 

From the mid-'70s to the mid-'80s, the Daryl Hall and John Oates scored six #1 singles, including "Rich Girl" (also #1 R&B), "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), "Maneater" and "Out of Touch" from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums -- '76's Bigger Than Both of Us, '80's Voices, '81's Private Eyes, '82's H2O, '83's Rock N Soul, Part I and '84's Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional five Top 10 singles, "Sara Smile," "One on One," "You Make My Dreams," "Say It Isn't So" and "Method of Modern Love." In 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the top-selling duo in pop music history, a record they still hold today.  In 2018 Daryl and John had a top 10 hit on the AC charts with “Philly Forget Me Not,” featuring Train.
