Huey Lewis & The News cancels Wisconsin State Fair show: 'I lost most of my hearing'

After revealing health concerns related to hearing loss in a Facebook post, Huey Lewis announced he was canceling his 2018 tour dates, including his August 19 concert at Northern Quest Resort and Casino, which was to also feature Richard Marx. "The lower frequencies distort violently making it inconceivable to look out pitch".

The band was set to headline at the Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater on June 24.

The '80s stars of Huey Lewis and The News were forced to cancel all upcoming shows as the frontman deals with serious medical issues.

Meniere's disease is a condition characterized by fluid build-up in the ear, causing hearing loss and vertigo, according to the Mayo Clinic's website. They were also scheduled to perform at the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco as well as open for Jimmy Buffett in Boston and Las Vegas.

Musician Huey Lewis attends the Trunk into the Long Run Restaurant screening in the Manhattan borough of New York, Oct 2 1, 2015.

He continued by saying he had seen hearing specialists at Stanford, the Mayo Clinic and the House Ear Institute. Lewis apologized to fans who've already bought tickets. "I'm going to pay attention to getting improved, and hope this oneday I'll be competent to perform again".

Lewis, 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".

Their last album was the 2010 release Soulsville.

'80s icon Huey Lewis may have to hang up the towel permanently due to a recent severe hearing loss over the past couple months.
