About Huey Lewis and the News
Catch Huey Lewis and the News live at The Venue at Horseshoe Hammond for a Chicago concert on June 13, 2014.
Huey Lewis and the News are a bar band that made good. With their simple, straightforward rock and roll, the San Francisco-based group became one of America's most popular pop/rock bands of the mid-'80s and beyond. Inspired equally by British pub rock and '60s R&B and rock and roll, the News have a driving, party-hearty spirit that made hits out of songs like "Workin' for a Livin'," "Hip to Be Square" and "The Power of Love."
2013 marked the 30th anniversary of Sports, one the most influential and celebrated albums in pop/rock music. Peaking at #1 on the Billboard Charts and selling over 10 million copies worldwide, the Grammy and Diamond Award-winning album is the anthem of a generation. Over half of the album’s songs were hit singles: “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Heart & Soul,” “I Want a New Drug,” “Walking on a Thin Line” and “If This Is It.”
Huey Lewis and the News have memorable hooks and an economical precision, striking a chord with audiences of all ages and persuasions.
