DARYL HALL AND JOHN OATES SET TO TOUR DOWN UNDER

 Daryl Hall and John Oates will bring their spectacular, acclaimed stage show to New Zealand and Australia for a tour of the two countries’ vintners as well as some of their most prestigious venues, starting Jan. 28 at the Church Road Winery in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, and concluding with a Feb. 12 show at Rocheford Wines in Australia’s Yarra Valley.

The duo, which headlined three sold-out shows at Hollywood Bowl’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular last year, are coming off an SRO world tour that played venues from Tokyo to Nashville in 2011.

“It’s a true thrill to go to Australia and New Zealand to play these shows,” says Daryl. “We have a great many fans there, and we’re really looking forward to reconnect with them.”

Daryl Hall and John Oates will be joined on the Aussie leg of the jaunt by Icehouse, whose relationship goes back to the late ‘80s, when John Oates co-wrote and sang vocals on the band’s smash hit, “Electric Blue,” with lead singer Iva Davies.

“We hung out on the beach in Sydney while Iva went windsurfing, and when we returned to the studio, we finally came up with the song,” recalls Oates.

The show will play wineries along the East Coast and southern part of Australia as part of A Day on the Green, as well as concerts at world-class venues such as Melbourne’s The Plenary (2/2) and Sydney’s Entertainment Centre (2/8). For a full list of tour dates, see below.

Daryl has been busy with his critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning monthly web series Live from Daryl’s House, which is garnering impressive ratings in its televised syndicated version, now available nationally.  Both Daryl and John released well-received solo albums last year in Laughing Down Crying and Mississippi Mile, respectively.
