Huey Lewis Cancels All Concerts Including Meijer Gardens
Sad news for Huey Lewis and the News fans. He has cancelled his entire 2018 concert tour, which includes the July 8 show at the Fifth Third Bank Summer Concert series at the Meijer Gardens.
It's due to a severe medical condition that doctors are in hopes of relieving.
Huey made this statement:
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.
Prayers for you, Huey. We'll miss you, and wish for a speedy and complete recovery.
