Today is a sad day for fans of Huey Lewis And The News as the band nixes all scheduled 2018 dates due to Lewis’ hearing problems.


“Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch. I’ve been to the House Ear Institute, the Stanford Ear Institute, and the Mayo Clinic, hoping to find an answer. The doctors believe I have Meniere’s disease and have agreed that I can’t perform until I improve. Therefore the only prudent thing to do is to cancel all future shows. Needless to say, I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again. Sincerely, Huey”

The schedule for Huey Lewis And The News ranged from May 10 at River Spirit Casino in Tulsa, Okla., to Sept. 28 at “Norsk Hostfest” at All Seasons Arena in Minot., N.D.  Other destinations included Atlantic City, Austin and Joliet, Ill., as well as appearing on Jimmy Buffett’s Aug. 9 gig at Boston’s Fenway Park
