You’ve seen Daryl Hall live from his house on VH1 but on Sunday night, he was live from the historic Ryman Auditorium. The show was part of his Live from Daryl’s House 2022 tour.
Legendary rock icon, producer, and fellow Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Todd Rundgren opened the show at the Mother Church. His rocking set included classics like “I Saw the Light” and “Hello It’s Me.” I can only hope to be still rocking that hard when I’m 73.
Following Rundgren’s set, Hall closed the night with a heavy dose of soulful R&B jams that are featured in his “Live from Daryl’s House” collection. He mixed in a couple of Hall & Oates classics like “Everytime You Go Away” and “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do).” He closed with a jamming encore of the popular “You Make My Dreams Come True.”
As Nashville does, special guests were on tap. Hall announced a long-time friend and Nashville resident to come out. Many people speculated that it would be John Oates but it wasn’t the other half of his iconic duo. It was Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. They did an amazing stripped-down version of “Here Comes the Rain Again” that no one in attendance will soon forget.
Hall proved that he’s a true R&B icon at the Ryman. To sum it up, it was truly a rocking show.
