Hall & Oates, those masters of “rock and soul” and harmony and disciples of the “Sound of Philly” visit the Sands Bethlehem Event Center for a 7:30 show on Monday night.
Best known for having a string of No. 1 pop hits in the 80s—including “Rich Girl,” “Kiss on My List,” and “Maneater”—fans know they never really went away.
Since their salad days, Daryl Hall and John Oates have continued to perform and record—together and individually. Hall is even the host of a popular web and syndicated musical show called “Live from Daryl’s House.”
Tickets range from $59.50 to $99.50.
