I changed my flight and accommodation dates so that I could attend this concert. The event was disappointing. Todd Rundgren was fairly good, although I couldn’t make out many of the lyrics of his songs. He seemed to be the support act but was actually better than Daryl Hall- the main act. I really enjoy Hall and Oates music and Daryl’s house, which has introduced me to several musicians, I had not heard of. Daryl’s part of the show was spoiled by his distracting signing to the technician, which he did almost half of his performance. He had little rapport with the audience and anyone expecting a range of songs from his back catalogue was to be disappointed. The show was largely self- serving and many patrons were to leave early. (Some of the ladies in the audience were rather attention seeking - and really old enough to know better.) All in all, a disappointment. However, the band was flawless and magnificent both with Todd and Daryl’s performances. 👏👏👏👏

Todd sang way better than I was expecting.There was definitely a lot of help from the band's harmonizing.Daryl belly ached about his reverb. If you can't sing anymore reverb won't help. Daryl's cover of "Here comes the rain again" forced us out of our seats ...not in a good the EXITS!!!

Saw this concert at Humphrey’s in San Diego. Overall the sound was horrible, though a bit better during Daryl’s set. Todd Rundgren took about 3 songs to find his voice, starting off his set flat and off key. His vocal recovery was partial and he never quite got to the point where he could hit the notes. Playing his songs, the band played uninspired almost like they were mailing it in. I was impressed with Todd’s guitar playing, really the highlight of his set. Daryl’s sound mix was noticeably better and the band came alive a bit, matching his energy level. While Daryl’s vocals were better and stronger than Todd’s, he still couldn’t hit the notes entirely and often resorted to changing his voice to get the words out. He played a good mix of hits, solo work and covers. Overall the concert was at or below average. The audience was talking and partying throughout, clearly more interested in the experience of the evening vs the music, and during the encore there was a steady stream of people leaving, with maybe half of the 1,400 attending left for the last song. My wife was part of an informal conversation in the restroom, where the ladies all agreed that neither artist had enough vocal chops left to inspire a future purchase of tickets to see either or both of them. Can’t say I disagree with their sentiment.

The most misleading and disappointing experience ever. Daryl and Todd Rundgren were hard to watch. We expected Daryl and his band to give us a live concert similar to his YouTube sessions with a guest appearance from Todd. One hit song from Todd during his awful hour-plus opening of questionable music, and a dreadful performance with a set list of unrecognizable music without any audience engagement from Daryl. Daryl was well aware he was not delivering what the audience paid for --- he actually had the nerve to ask the audience that very question. We walked out during the last set.

I’m 72 years old, been going to at least 6 concerts a year for over 50 years. This was the worst concert I have ever seen or shall I say heard. Sound for first set with Todd, was terrible. Only heard the drums, could not understand a word he sang. Second set with Hall, same on first song, was motioning to sound man, then sounded much better, but still not what I was expecting. Terrible sound for Carnegie Hall, even second set with 3 piano/organs couldn’t hear them! Watched all his Daryl’s House shows, and have been to his club in Pawling, NY, but this was garbage! .

We were looking forward to a fun night at this concert The sound was worse than a high school gym, set was a mess with poor lighting and the worse sound . Todd Rundgren sounded shrill and never adjusted and his words were muddled Daryl came on and said he doesnt do sound checks and stayed visibly annoyed throughout the show barking reprimands at one point he laughed off a Chicago review that called him uptight! Needless to say we left very early a wasted night

The wife and I were expecting to hear Darrel’s hits songs. Unfortunately he played songs we never heard before - Very disappointing experience. Todd Rundgren was extremely hard to watch. His voice is just not there. It’s was very hard to understand what he’s saying and his pitch/tone is off. Needless to say, we left early. The lesson learned here - search the tour song list before purchasing tickets.
