This morning, Iva Davies and Paul Gildea took John Oates along to the Channel 9 Mornings studio and performed the song live and acoustic. It was only the fourth time in 25 years John Oates has joined Icehouse on stage to sing the song he wrote with Iva all those years ago.

After the Melbourne show last week John told Noise11.com that prior to this current tour the only other time they ever performed the song live in public was in New York at Madison Square Garden in 1987.

John also revealed on the Noise11.com interview that on that 80s songwriting junket he and Iva wrote maybe three songs together but the other two were awful.

Watch the performance on Australian TV this morning below and John’s Noise11.com interview below that.

Icehouse and Hall & Oates will perform there final two Australian shows this weekend for A Day On The Green:

Dates are:

February 11, Barossa Valley, Peter Lehmann Winery
February 12, Yarra Valley, Rochford Winery
