Huey Lewis & The News - CANCELED

We regret to announce that Huey Lewis & The News have canceled their 2018 tour, including the scheduled July 8 show here as part of the Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens. We wish Huey a speedy recovery and are looking forward to having him back at the Meijer Gardens Amphitheater again in the future. Below is a full statement from Huey Lewis:

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
