Hall And Oates (Daryl Hall and John Oates) perform at the Allstate Arena. The duo have teamed up with Tears For Fears as part of a 29 date co-headline tour - Rosemont, Illinois, United States - Tuesday 16th May 2017
'Maneater', 'Out of Touch', 'Rich Girl', 'Kiss on My List', 'Private Eyes', 'I Can't Go for That' - with such astounding number one hits and many further top forty singles, its no wonder that Hall And Oates are considered the most accomplished musical duo in the world. With multiple sell-out world tours, Daryl Hall and John Oates have delighted fans across the world while live in concert. But there is one place that they never quite managed to get to, and that was Dublin.
It's nearly time to usher in a new generation of rock legends.
Today's the day! A new year's worth of rock royalty will tonight be ushered into the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Hall And Oates, the E Street Band, Andrew Loog Oldham and Brian Epstein are hours away from becoming the newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Former Nirvana Rockers Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic Will Be Performing At Tonight's Ceremony.
Stevens, now called Yusuf Islam, is going to perform alongside the E Street Band, who are being inducted b Bruce Springsteen, as well as Gabriel. Emmylou Harris, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Nicks and Bonnie Raitt will reportedly be singing a tribute to Ronstadt. SPIN is reporting that Joan Jett will sing the Nirvana tunes, which has ignited rock fan's imagination more than any other rumour.
Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt will also be honoured, with the E Street Band, Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham will receive special awards
The inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's class of 2014 have been chosen, with Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall And Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt all being honoured in the latest induction. As well as these, the E Street Band will be presented with the Award for Musical Excellence at the ceremony, with Beatles manager Brian Epstein and original Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham also being honoured as non-performers.
Nirvana have been honoured at the first time of asking
For Nirvana, their induction comes at the first time of asking, with the band only becoming eligible for induction this year. According to the rules of the Hall of Fame, an artist only becomes eligible for recognition 25 years after the release of their first album or single. For Nirvana, their first single came in 1988 with the release of 'Love Buzz,' with their induction coming as "no surprise" to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President and CEO Joel Peresman or many other people for that matter.
Other close favourites include Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel and YES
The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame will induct it's class of 2014 in April next year and earlier this week the nominees for the coveted place among rock's elite was announced to the public. For only the second time, the ballot for the inductees will be made available for public voting, and already there are some stand out favourites that look as though they have a good chance of being among the next hall of famers.
Nirvana are already the early favourites to be inducted
The early favourites, according to the public voting poll, are currently Nirvana, Kiss, Deep Purple and Yes, all of whom have over 10% of the current votes. Nirvana, who make their debut on the nominees list, currently stand as the out right favourites for induction, with the R&RHoF policy only permitting artist who have existed for a quarter of a century or longer as eligible for nomination. Their cover of Shocking Blue's 'Love Buzz' was released as their first single in 1988, which means they are finally able to be taken into consideration.
