Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performances

Buffett needs a new opening act for some of his shows. Sad!

From the Facebook page of Huey Lewis and The News

Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performances
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

Sorry to hear that. I always liked Huey and was impressed when I saw him open for Jimmy.

I wonder who will replace him on Jimmy's shows this year?

A friend who had a ticket for the Fenway show got a full refund when it was announced Huey cancelled his shows. Of course, if you still want to see JB then no worries :)
