Huey Lewis Cancels ALL Shows After Revealing Hearing Loss

Huey Lewis has canceled all upcoming tour dates after revealing that Meniere’s disease has severely damaged his hearing.

The namesake of Huey Lewis and the News announced on Twitter Friday afternoon that hearing issues have made it “impossible” to continue singing for the foreseeable future.

In his statement, the 67-year-old explains that the issue came on suddenly, just over two months ago. “Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing,” he writes. “The lower frequencies distort violently, making it impossible to find pitch.”

After visits with doctors and experts, they agreed that Lewis was suffering from Meniere’s, an inner ear disorder that produces feelings of vertigo, as well as tinnitus (or ringing) and hearing loss.
