I personally have loved Huey Lewis and the News since day one when he first captured my attention with Do You Believe In Love and Heart And Soul.
The hits that followed those just seemed like a fine wine, better with age from The Power Of Love to The Heart Of Rock ‘N’ Roll to everything in between.
Of late, Huey and his band have taken to touring every summer with a stop a few years ago at Bluesfest here in our own backyard.
The story was the same this year with his almost annual return to Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY where I had seen him a few years ago with my husband and we were thinking maybe we should go again this year.
Well those plans are now postponed for us too as on Friday, Huey Lewis released a statement saying he was cancelling his 2018 tour under doctors orders.
Huey says the response from colleagues, friends and fans about his hearing loss has been truly overwhelming and extremely heartening. He tweets the support is helping him focus on improving and on finding a way to sing again.
Huey Lewis and the News cancelled their 2018 tour because Lewis lost most of his hearing before a show in Dallas. He says he can’t hear music well enough to sing because low frequencies are distorted, adding that doctors believe he has Meniere’s disease, a disorder of the inner ear that can be treated but not cured.
