At the DISH Grandstand
Huey Lewis and the News are truly one of America’s great rock & roll bands. As they enter their 38th year together, their contagious brand of music has outlasted countless trends, and is as fresh today as ever. Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling over 20 million albums in the process, earning them the right to mark their place on the pop history map. These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “I Want A New Drug,” “If This Is It,” “Hip To Be Square,” “Do You Believe In Love,” and “Workin’ For A Livin’.”
As great a recording career as the band has had, there is something extra special about a Huey Lewis and the News live show. They incorporate a variety of musical influences including R&B and soul to create their own unique sound. Frontman Huey Lewis' unmistakable voice has a rich, textured quality that lends itself well to not just their hits, but also to the variety of other songs featured in the show. Lewis also brings some bluesy tones to the performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos. A cappella renditions of early rock n’ roll classics like “It’s Alright”, “Little Bitty Pretty One” and “Sixty Minute Man” are other highlights of the show.
