I was so excited to see this show. It was actually a total let down. Train was great, but Hall and Oats messed with most original songs and didn't play enough of them. We went to this concert to hear the music we remember back in the day, not this horrible mash up/mix. Oh well guess I will stick with there cd's in the comfort of our cars and home.

Hall and Oates at the Forum were terrible. We understand these guys are 70 years old and did not expect them to sound like they did in their youth but the sound mix was poor and very disjointed. There was no joy in their performance and it appeared they were just going through the motions. Train performing on the same stage sounded great. The vocals were clear and present. Pat Monahagn clearly enjoys what he’s doing. They were worth the price for 6th row seats. We left H & O’s performance early as it was too painful and heard others express their disappointment as well.

HALL AND OATS FORGOT THEIR FANS
We spent $750.00 for 5 people to see Hall and Oates whom we all loved from back in the day. The opening Act Train was spectacular! Their Music was spot on, voice versus band volume was great, all appeared alert to the crowd. Train truly gave the crowd its monies worth and we the crowd showed our approval. Hall and Oats was another story. From viewing the age range of those in attendance it was a older group that came for the memories and the love of the songs... Hall and Oates from the first song appeared off key, at times speaking the words versus singing. Daryl would mumble, hum and babbled like a drunk or stooner ( which is fine if it doesn't hurt the show)The band volume trumped the lyrics and the bass was horrible for this era of music. Hall seemed to forget we the crowd was paying his band and himself to entertain us with accuracy and true to memory songs. Most of the songs included long instrumentals but lacked in understandable lyrics.Their songs are all about singing along to and great memories past. The way they were presented almost made sing along impossible... I almost felt sorry for them but quickly remembered the large amount of time and monies $$$ we put out for their time. I feel that in the future if I want to listen to Hall and Oates its YouTube or another streaming service. It's sad when entertainers forget who pays their salaries.. this concert needs a class action lawsuit brought for extremly poor performance and lack of give give a darn by Hall.. Guess he was to stoned to give a crap.. I want my money back... Hall and soars sucked!

TRAIN ROCKED- HALL & OATES SUCKED
Train was amazing- I didn't realize I liked Train so much, but I knew every song word for word that they sang. I am a new Train Fan. Hall & Oates- that's a different story. They need to play for their audience, which is radio hit after radio hit- they did not do that. We were hoping this show would be a sing a long and it was far from that. They played slow versions of their songs and a lot of instrumental. Their songs did not sound as they should and were off. Very disappointed in H&O.

HALL & OATES/TRAIN
Train stole the show! I wish they could have played all night! H&O were horrible. Pretty sure Hall was stoned. We were disappointed. Time to retire guys.

HALL AND OATES /TRAIN
Train was the best thing about this show. H & O were a distorted mess. I knew that Daryl's voice wouldn't be what it once was, but wow! I am old school, I want to hear the songs from the height of their popularity and have them sound at least somewhat familiar... Very disappointed. So glad I didn't pay a ton of money for the tickets.

HALL & OATES - GRAND RAPIDS MI
Let me first start by thanking Kandace and Train for saving this show. Kandace was amazing had a phenomenal voice and she was very welcoming. Will definitely be checking out and buying her music. Train, I had never seen in concert and loved every bit of their performance. Very entertaining and really drew you in. Then it was time for Hall and Oates. Needless to say I was very disappointed. I had been so looking forward to this concert. None of their songs were performed the same as it was back in the day which is what people come to see. The long guitar and saxophone solos and very little singing and the lack of connection with the audience was a let down. Hall was overpowering and it made me feel bad for Oates as he just took back seat for the night, which I guess may have not been a bad thing for him. We did not stay for the whole performance and left with many other people leaving. I wound not recommend this show. Thanks again Kandace and Train you we both amazing!!!!!
