Daryl Hall Plays Hall & Oates Songs Live Amid John Oates Lawsuit

In the midst of a legal battle that includes a restraining order against his longtime musical and business partner John Oates, Daryl Hall played a concert with a setlist filled with Hall & Oates classics.

Hall took to the stage at the Tokyo Garden Theater in Japan on Nov. 23, and performed plenty of the duo’s classic hits, including “Out of Touch,” “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” and “Private Eyes.”

Classic rocker Todd Rundgren also appeared at the show.

Fans of Hall & Oates were shocked to learn that Hall filed an undisclosed complaint against Oates, as well as a motion for a temporary restraining order, on Nov. 16. The restraining order was granted and is set to go into effect on Nov. 30. Little information is known about the lawsuit, as the records are sealed by the court.

Hall & Oates formed in 1970 and released their debut album, “Whole Oats,” in 1972. Through their wildly successful career, they achieved six No. 1 hits, including “Maneater” and “Rich Girl.” In addition to their respective solo careers through the years, Hall & Oates toured together as recently as October 2022.

In a 2021 interview with GQ, Oates downplayed any tension in the duo’s long-term collaboration.

“Y’know, [there have been] way more ups than downs, to be honest with you,” he said. “It’s actually a miracle, I’m actually shocked that we are able to still play together and it’s great. It’s something that you have to really appreciate, because like you said, it’s not easy.”
