Daryl Hall To Open For Billy Joel At London’s Hyde Park
Daryl Hall is set to serve as the opening act for longtime friend Billy Joel on July 7th, when the “Piano Man” hits London for the American Express presents BST Hyde Park concert. Hall will be joined on stage by his hometown buddy and current touring mate Todd Rundgren, who will also be Hall’s special guest on July 9th at the London Eventim Apollo.
Although Daryl Hall is now 76, one would never know it by his stage presence and relentless schedule. He told us he believes the act of creating keeps artists young: “It doesn’t really mean that much to me, to tell you the truth. Time. . . I sort of, live outside of time. I think all artists do. I think all artists are perpetually in their 20’s, because I think that’s the creative decade when you first learn about yourself and who you are and what your potentials are, and I don’t think an artist ever loses that. It’s not the ‘Peter Pan’ thing, it’s just one of those things that you always feel sort of fresh.”
