On Wednesday, Daryl and John will appear with Howard Stern for an interview and acoustic performance. The following day, the No. 1 selling duo in music history is booked for a plugged-in performance and interview on "The View." Later that night (7 p.m. local time), Daryl and John will come to the big screen for a special one-night concert event, "Daryl Hall & John Oates: Recorded Live From Dublin." On Sunday, Daryl and John will travel to Washington, D.C., to perform for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as they welcome the National Governors Association to the White House for the 2015 Governors' Ball.

Daryl Hall and John Oates are soul survivors. Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970s, from the mid-'70s to the mid-'80s, the duo would score six No. 1 singles, including "Rich Girl" (also No. 1 R&B), "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) (also No. 1 R&B), "Maneater" and "Out of Touch." By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl and John as the No. 1 selling duo in music history, a record still held today. In May 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI's 56th annual Pop Awards. In 2014, the two musicians hit another high as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
