Huey Lewis has canceled all of his 2018 performances after revealing he’s suffering from severe hearing loss that doctors believe was caused by Meniere’s disease, an inner ear disorder.
The 67-year-old singer, who with his band, Huey Lewis and the News, scored a string of 1980s hits including “The Power of Love,” “I Want a New Drug” and “Heart and Soul,” shared the update Friday in a candid letter to fans.
It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:
“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,” Lewis wrote. “The lower frequencies distort violently, making it impossible to find pitch.”
He also assured fans he was thinking optimistically about the future.
“I’m going to concentrate on getting better,” he wrote, “and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.”
