A&E’s “Private Sessions” sits down with legendary group Hall and Oates, this Sunday, October 25 and 9AM ET/PT. They join host Lynn Hoffman for an in-depth interview and a performance of a few of their biggest hits.

Daryl Hall and John Oates met in a freight elevator while escaping a riot during a Battle of the Bands concert in 1969 and have since become one of the most successful duos in pop history with their combination of folk, rock and soul.

They’ll chat with host Lynn Hoffman about their Philadelphia roots, rising to fame, keeping their private lives private, forty years of number 1 hits together, putting together the tracks for their new and first of its kind 4-CD Boxed Set: “Do What You Want, Be What You Are” and their upcoming project on the new series “Cleveland,” where Daryl and John play an angel and devil on Cleveland's shoulder.

Along with their long time band, they’ll perform many of their top hits including; “Maneater,” “Sara Smile,” “She's Gone,” “Say It Isn't So” and “It's A Laugh.” There will also be special guest appearances by brothers Kevin & Michael Bacon, country sensation Jimmy Wayne, Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes, and one of the creators and voices of the new animated series "The Cleveland Show," Mike Henry.

Filmed in a small, intimate studio in New York City, “Private Sessions” showcases exclusive performances and conversations with top names in entertainment with a focus on contemporary music ranging from rock ‘n’ roll to pop to country. Each Sunday morning “Private Sessions” explores the body of work of a single artist or group and feature current releases as well as career-building, influential or defining projects.
