Upcoming Events for Huey Lewis and the News

Huey Lewis and the News have been defying the rock odds-makers for more than two decades. Their contagious brand of straight-ahead rock 'n' roll has outlasted countless trends, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide in the process.

They've carried the banner as the quintessential American rock band, endearing them to millions of fans and earning them the right to mark their place on the pop history map. With favorites, like 1983's "Heart and Soul," 1984's "I Want A New Drug," their beloved anthem "The Heart Of Rock 'n' Roll" and 1986's "Stuck With You," all culled from their back-to-back multi-platinum albums, "Sports" (1983) and "Fore!" (1986).

Huey Lewis and The News In addition, their infectious "Power Of Love," from the 1985 hit film "Back To The Future," which went all the way to Number 1 on Billboard's singles chart (the band's first chart-topper) was nominated for an Academy Award.

Huey Lewis and the News have been stoking the rock fires since their humble beginnings in Bay Area rock clubs of the 1970's. Formed officially in 1979, their only formula has been to perform and record with sweat on their brow, and their heart and soul firmly planted on their sleeves. They have delivered multiple albums worth of bustling, optimistic music that fan the flames of rock 'n' roll's more spirited roots.

The News, which features saxophonist Johnny Colla, drummer Bill Gibson, guitarist Stef Burns, keyboardist Sean Hopper, and new bassist John Pierce, who replaces outgoing member Mario Cipollina, have always been known as musician's musicians. From Huey's legendary shows with his former band Clover in the late '70's, to the News' Bay Area reputation as rock troubadours (a little known fact is that some of the members performed backup on the first Elvis Costello album), to their critically acclaimed homage to rock and R&B on the 1994 album "Four Chords And Several Years Ago," the band's simple mantra, according to Huey, has been to "always keep it pure, keep it honest."
