The Hall & Oates return to Australia will be a reunion of sorts for John Oates with Iva Davies of Icehouse.
John Oates co-wrote ‘Electric Blue’, one of the biggest Icehouse hits.
“We hung out on the beach in Sydney while Iva went windsurfing, and when we returned to the studio, we finally came up with the song,” recalls Oates in a statement.
Hall & Oates will tour Australia and New Zealand starting January 28 in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand.
“It’s a true thrill to go to Australia and New Zealand to play these shows,” says Daryl. “We have a great many fans there, and we’re really looking forward to reconnect with them.”
