Huey Lewis-frontman for '80s hitmakers Huey Lewis and the News-announced Friday that the band will cancel all remaining 2018 shows due to problems the singer is experiencing with his hearing. Also, festival organizers tweeted about the development.
Huey Lewis is the proud owner of a Grammy award and received an Acadamy Award nomination for Best Original Song with "The Power of Love". "The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to ﬁnd pitch", wrote Lewis on the group's Facebook page.
After visiting doctors in several locations, including the Stanford Ear Institute and the Mayo Clinic, Lewis said doctors believe he has Meniere's disease. She said she regretted not acting sooner when she felt her hearing "slipping away", and sought to help others by speaking out.
Lewis went on to explain that doctors believe he has "Meniere's disease", and said he should not perform until he improves.
The sad irony is that Lewis is the talent show judge in "Back To The Future" that has to tell Marty McFly that his music is "just too loud".
It was not an easy thing to do for the Bay Area music legend. "Needless to say, I feel awful about this, and I sincerely apologize to all the fans who've already bought tickets and were planning to come see us".
Now, Lewis' eye moves to the future.
Huey Lewis And The News have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and hit the top of the United States charts in the 1980s with Sports and Fore!
