Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2014 Inductee John Oates will be at the Rock Hall May 21. Oates will chat with fans, perform a short acoustic set, and sign copies of his new book, Change of Seasons.

In an interview at 1 p.m. in Foster Theater, Oates will reveal stories from his musical partnership with Daryl Hall (“She’s Gone,” “Private Eyes,” “Rich Girl”), his solo career, and dive into other stories from his memoir, Change of Seasons.

Oates will also discuss his 2014 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and how his sound was shaped by the early days of rock and roll, traditional American folk and blues and the soul sounds of the Philadelphia streets. Dr. Jason Hanley, Vice President of Education and Visitor Engagement for the Rock Hall, will lead the discussion.

After the interview, Oates will perform a short acoustic set, playing some of his favorite tunes for fans in the intimate theater. Concluding the day, fans will get a chance to meet Oates during a book signing of his memoir, Change of Seasons, at 3 p.m. in the FYE store inside the Rock Hall.

Advance tickets are required for the 1 p.m. live interview and performance in Foster Theater; for details, visit ticketing.rockhall.com. The book signing at 3 p.m. is free with the purchase of Oates’ book from the FYE store inside of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Books are available while supplies last.
