Huey Lewis cancels all 2018 shows due to hearing loss

music news 16/04/2018

After advice from his doctors Huey Lewis has had to canel all remaining shows for the year.

He shared the news on social media saying he had a serious problem with his hearing.

"Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing," he posted on Facebook. "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."

He had 19 shows planned from May 10 and October 20.
