Happy Birthday to John Oates of Hall & Oates, who turns 73 today (April 7th)!!! Back in February 2020, Hall & Oates played to a full house at New York's Madison Square Garden with Squeeze serving as their opening act. Health permitting, the two groups will be on tour throughout the summer. Daryl Hall and John Oates are currently prepping their first album of all-new material in 18 years.
On the solo front, John Oates played a string of 2019 dates in support of his live EP, John Oates With The Good Road Band – Live. The set features live tracks from his 2018 shows in support of his critically acclaimed Americana album, Arkansas. Last fall saw the release of Live From Nashville, which features his touring ensemble, the Good Road Band.
In 2017, Oates published his autobiography, Change Of Seasons, via St. Martin’s Press. In addition to his legendary work with Hall & Oates, the memoir discusses all aspects of Oates personal and professional life.
