Legendary musicians Daryl Hall and John Oates will take the stage at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s A&B Amphitheater and Yokouchi Pavilion on March 29.
Tickets for the concert that begins at 7 p.m. (with gates opening at 5 p.m.) go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday for MACC members and Saturday to the general public.
Henry Kapono also will be performing at the concert produced by LiveNation and the MACC.
The band also will be performing in Honolulu at the Blaisdell Arena on March 27 with tickets going on sale for that concert at 10 a.m. Saturday through www.ticketmaster.com and at the Blaisdell Arena Box Office.
From 1976 to 1984, the duo scored six No. 1 singles, including “Rich Girl,” “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” “Maneater” and “Out of Touch,” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums — “Bigger Than Both of Us,” “Voices,” “Private Eyes,” “H2O,” “Rock N Soul, Part I” and “Big Bam Boom.”
Hall and Oates also would produce an additional five Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”
Hall also wrote the single “Everytime You Go Away,” with which singer Paul Young scored a No. 1 hit in 1985. That same year, Hall and Oates participated in the historic “We Are the World” session to raise money for humanitarian aid in Africa.
By 1987, the Recording Industry Association of America recognized Hall and Oates as the No. 1 selling duo in history, a record they still hold.
Since the 2000s, Hall and Oates have received numerous awards. On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award previously has gone to the Bee Gees; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Paul Simon; Brian Wilson; Willie Nelson; James Brown; Ray Davies; Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton.
In 2014, Hall and Oates were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
