The trek gets underway tonight at the SubCulture New York venue in New York City, and runs through an April 9 appearance at the Nashville Public Library in Oates’ adopted hometown of Nashville.
The tour also includes stops in the Boston area, Philadelphia, the Chicago suburb of Naperville, Denver, Austin, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In Change of Seasons, Oates candidly shares his life story, including his lifelong passion for music, his childhood years in New York City and, later, in the suburbs of Philadelphia, the development of his friendship and musical partnership with Daryl Hall, and his experiences as part of one of the most successful duos in pop music history.
The memoir is based on the handwritten journals that Oates has been keeping since the day he graduated college in 1970.
Co-written with music journalist Chris Epting, the book comes packaged with a five-track companion CD featuring original and traditional songs that illustrate the stories he tells in the book, including a live version of “Maneater.”
As previously reported, Oates will team up with Hall for a joint North American trek with Tears for Fears that gets underway May 4 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Hall & Oates also will be headlining and hosting the inaugural HoagieNation festival, scheduled for May 27 in Philadelphia.
