Area natives Daryl Hall and John Oates will formally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The most successful duo of the rock ‘n’ roll era — including six gold-selling No. 1 singles and 29 hits overall on Billboard’s Top 40 chart between 1976 and 1990 — Hall & Oates will be part of the hall’s Class of 2014 performer inductees, which include Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Kiss, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, and The E Street Band.
Hall & Oates are expected to be among the inductees performing during the ceremony, which will be broadcast May 31 on HBO.
When asked if he could offer any hints as to what songs Hall & Oates would play, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum President and CEO Greg Harris said he expected the duo to cover their major hits while representing each era of their career.
