Five years ago, Daryl Hall started inviting fellow musicians he'd known for years and artists just beginning their careers over to his house. The resulting jams were filmed and put up on the internet as Live from Daryl's House, and their growing popularity has now spawned a road version. Hall, of course, is best known for his longtime collaboration with John Oates. Mixing Philly soul with rock and pop, Hall and Oates were prolific hitmakers in the 1970s and '80s, assaulting the charts with such tunes as "Rich Girl," "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," and "Maneater." Decades later, Hall seems to be having the time of his life playing in his living room with the likes of Smokey Robinson and Cee Lo Green. Plus he recently issued his first solo album in 14 years, Laughing Down Crying, an engaging summation of his strengths and influences. On his Nu-Soul Revue tour, Hall will be joined by his LFDH band, soul diva Sharon Jones, and neo-R&B/soul singer Allen Stone. Plus Philly cheesesteak chef Tony Luke will be on hand via video link.
