For years, Hall & Oates has been on top of "must-see" list and had been looking forward to Seattle show for months. Train was awesome and first gal forgettable (even though she reminded us of her name every few moments while her name was on screen). H&O's vocal sound was just horrible and as last show, you think they would have worked out those kinks by then!

Don't they read reviews? Most other venues complained of muddy sound, too much bass and percussion, too loud and distorted. Same in Portland last night. It was the Daryl Hall show with little presence by Oates. Often couldn't figure out what the song was. Expected better. Pat Monahan was great fun and even saved H&O with his voice in their set. While Train's sound was a bit better than H&O, it could of been improved. Same for Kandace Springs. The Moda Center is awful for sound. The Eagles had it dialed in much bettter with a lower volume and less distortion and echo. Please clue in future artists.

Sound mixing was terrible. Bass over shadowed everything. Train was good but that's not who we went to see.

1.0 star rating Bill M from Los Angeles, California


Their sound mixers failed. Music too loud and distorted. Could not hear and understand the singing. Was not worth the visit

1.0 star rating Kent from Kansas City, Missouri


I should have learned and taken heed of all the reviews I saw prior to the KC concert. Train nailed it !!!! Crisp, clean and fantastic interaction with the crowd ! Not piling on, but Hall & Oates need to hang it'd think with all the negative reviews, they'd "fix" whatever was wrong, but then again, they probably don't read the reviews (time to start boys....). As with others, the sound mix between the 2 bands was night and day. Couple that with H&O turning old 3-4 minute classics into 7-8 minute overtures and we left before the encore.......time to retire......

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but Train gave a better show last night than Hall & Oates. Admittedly, H&O can still sing and play. They are legends! But the devil can be in the sound engineering. Hall brought along his stellar musicians and singers from “Daryl’s House of Blues” TV show. The Hall of Fame duo is still great, make no mistake about it, but unfortunately the sound engineering for their portion of the concert was nothing short of horrible. Digitized to the max, tinny sounds, volume distortion, and extreme echoes ruined the classic sound of H&O. It was so loud the music was completely distorted and the jumble of instruments tramped all over Hall’s sweet vocals.Understanding words and hearing instrument solos was near impossible. The songs dragged on too long too. You found yourself hoping that they would move on to another classic instead of just playing one song to death. Train, however, stole the show and was nothing short of fantastic. Patrick Monahan, lead singer for Train, sang is a— off while taking selfies with the crowd, signing Penguins shirts for fans, and tossing large beach balls into the crowd for fun. My husband, who has heard Train on the radio, was not a true fan until last night. He was amazed at how terrific and tight the band was live. I have seen H&O many times in the past. I was truly disappointed in how the sound engineering ruined what could have been a really great concert.
