MANCHESTER Arena stepped back in time as American legends Hall and Oates got fans up on their feet dancing to a succession of hits.

The duo were described as “gods” by warm-up act KT Tunstall who expressed her excitement throughout her set.

The Scottish songstress impressed the audience with her energy, charisma and talent but was overshadowed by the grandeur of the main act.

Kicking off their set with one of their most familiar tunes, Maneater got people grooving right from the start.

The soulful Philadelphians seemed to be having as much fun as their adoring fans as they reeled out hit after hit.

They told stories of their early days which featured trips to Manchester playing songs like She’s Gone which they said came to define them.

The Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Famers were joined by their perfectly professional band.

Most notably, the bearded saxophonist played the band’s most unmistakable melodies including the glockenspiel in Out of Touch.

Daryl Hall took the piano for Sara Smile and jumped on the keys for hits like Rich Girl.

John Oates took centre stage for some songs, leading on vocals for the duo’s classic cover of You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling which the moustached man described as one of the best rock and roll songs of all time.

The audience were well-versed in the band’s discography with fans popping up for their favourite songs like jumping jacks as soon as they heard the first notes.

The show climaxed when the pop-rock stars returned for an encore which had the crowd on its feet throughout.

Kiss On My List, Private Eyes and You Make My Dreams all featured in the fantastic finale.

Hall and Oates are duo with an incomparable repertoire that have still got it - so you’d better catch them will you can!
