JUST IN: Huey Lewis and The News summer concert canceled

UPDATE: April 13, 2018: 

Due to illness, the Huey Lewis and The News concert scheduled for Tuesday, June 26, at Rose Music Center has been canceled, the music venue announced.

The band wrote in an announcement provided to music venues:

“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. 

Refunds for the June 26 show at Rose Music Center can be obtained at the point of purchase.
