Huey Lewis suffering from hearing loss - cancels remaining 2018 concerts

Wow, this is sad news.



I hope he does recover and doesn't lose his hearing permanently.

Re: Huey Lewis suffering from hearing loss - cancels remaining 2018 concerts

That's some pretty tough news for anyone, but especially when you're a musician.

Not a huge fan of his music, but I have fond memories, as his was the first rock show I ever saw, back in 1984. I remember it being pretty fun, because this was the tour for the Sports album, and that album exploded on MTV during this tour. So it was fun seeing a big, current MTV star in a pretty small venue.

Iím mostly familiar with the songs done for the Back to the Future films (mainly the first I guess) and his small cameo. I know a couple other hits but canít say Iím a huge fan. Still a bummer to hear though.

As a child of the 80's, I love his music. Finally saw him and the News last year at a festival. His voice had lost a lot of it's range, but he was still giving it his all. I'm so glad I had the chance to see them before this happened. Hope he recovers.

That sucks Gotta be awful for a musician to lose his hearing.
I saw him once back in high school and would love to see him again.

Hope he gets better

He was a fixture at Niner games in the 80's and his music brings back good memories of the 80's.

Hopefully they can find a new drug that can help him with that.

Really does suck. I was planning to see him in May. Last time I saw him was 1986.

I know it wasn't intentional, but I laughed.

True story--I originally typed I was sorry to hear the news and figured that wasn't the best choice of words.

Off topic but there is a rumor he has a python between his legs.

One of my friends Mom's has Menieres and it's no joke, lots of dizziness loss of balance and general unease. As someone that grew up in the 80s this is sad news indeed. Although they are not in my top 10 bands Hewie seemed like someone that would sort of always be around filling up the small venues during the summer. hope they can get it sorted out as he seems like a really nice guy.

Damn, you just had to say something, thus ensuring that Jeff's awkward penis reference wasn't a thread-killer. Would've been to come back here months/years later and see his post dangling without a reply.




Sorry about your Mom, btw.
