HALL AND OATES-MSG FEB 28
Despite not being a fan of alternative music, Squeeze stole the show and spot on. Huge fan of Hall and Oates, thus the reason for going, and their sound and demeanor were way off. We hardly understood Daryl when speaking, live center video off speed, and it was painful to observe a group of talented musicians not into the crowd (except for sax, drums, percussion but even they did not seemed thrilled to perform) and just going through the motions. (The crowd even reflected their lackluster performance.) It was blatantly obvious they didn't want to be there (or even like each other) and what was with the poorly executed extended songs? (It was like a run on sentence!) I get you want to change it up after singing the songs for decades, but we wanted to hear the originals (or even close to it) and at $300 (plus $60 parking, the commute, and cost of dinner) we had to leave after Sara so the taste in our mouth didn't become disdain. We hoped it would get better and had to bow out, which we've never done. Not cool to disappoint the tri-state and the negative buzz is out there. They didn't even capture the younger crowd to solidify them. Please, do yourselves and us a favor and stop touring as you don't exude the love for your craft nor your faithful fans. I'd rather my lasting memories be of the passionate group we saw in the 80's, not the ones observed last night. Sorry, as it pains us to pan them. How disappointing.

SOUND WAS AWFUL
This is for the Madison Square, Garden show on February 28, 2020. Not sure if the soundman had hearing aids or not but the sound was absolutely horrible. Bass was Way out of proportion to the rest of the band. You could hardly hear Daryl Hall sing nor understand the lyrics, the overall performance was excellent, it was good to see the band back together again. Got to do something with the sound guy before I see them again. Squeeze came on second and they sounded excellent and there performance was outstanding.
