Iconic rockers Huey Lewis and the News were to have a busy 2018 touring schedule, including a coveted spot at the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco this August — but on Friday that all changed.
In a statement released by the band, Huey Lewis explains he’s dealing with some significant and debilitating hearing loss that would make it impossible to perform live.

Best wishes to Huey in dealing with this difficult development.
