Daryl Hall, who has taken fans inside his home for the critically acclaimed, nationally televised web series Live from Daryl’s House, is now ready to take his show on the road.

The award-winning program, which recently marked its 50th episode, is set for a seven-city U.S. tour: The Live from Daryl’s House Nu-Soul Revue featuring Daryl Hall and the LFDH Band with special guests Sharon Jones plus Allen Stone. 

Philly chef Tony Luke, who has also appeared on the series, will also host a video cooking segment on how to prepare his world-famous cheesesteak.

The past five years have seen Live from Daryl’s House receive a Webby Award for Best Variety series and an O Music Award from MTV. 

Live from Daryl’s House is syndicated nationally and shown weekly in over 80% of U.S. homes in the nation’s top 200 media markets, as well as all of the top 10, including New York (WPIX), L.A. (KTLA), Chicago (WGN), Dallas (KDAF) and Houston (KIAH).
The show has also cleared in such key markets as Philadelphia (CBS-owned KYW), Boston (KBIN) and Atlanta (WATL), as well as a number of NBC, Fox and CBS-owned affiliates across the country. Most stations are airing a full hour with two original shows back to back on Saturday nights. The first week of the show did a .2 in national Nielsens, with the second week increasing 50% and several stations adding airings.
