Huey Lewis Cancels Tour Appearances Due to Hearing Loss

April 13th, 2018


Huey Lewis was set to play some shows this summer again with Jimmy Buffett, but in a note posted on his website he revealed that he will not make any tour appearances due to hearing loss:

Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch. I’ve been to the House Ear Institute, the Stanford Ear Institute, and the Mayo Clinic, hoping to find an answer. The doctors believe I have Meniere’s disease and have agreed that I can’t perform until I improve. Therefore the only prudent thing to do is to cancel all future shows. Needless to say, I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again. Sincerely, Huey

Best wishes to Huey on his recovery!

Buffett and The Eagles Will Reportedly Pair Up in 2018

November 15th, 2017


In an interview with Bestclassicbands.com, The Eagles manager Irving Azoff said that the iconic band and Jimmy Buffett will pair up to play stadium shows next year:

After a warm reception to an Eagles reunion without the late Glenn Frey, a set of stadium dates is being planned for summer of 2018, pairing the best-selling band with party troubadour Jimmy Buffett.

“One word answer? Yes,” the band’s longtime manager, Irving Azoff, told Best Classic Bands. Coors Field in Denver will be one destination, Azoff said, with “an Eagles/Buffett celebration up in the mountains there. We’re just talking about a handful” of stadium dates featuring the two classic artists.

Azoff declined to comment about a possible Eagles tour following the stadium dates, noting that the band is still in flux after the untimely death of co-founder Frey. Vince Gill and Frey’s son Deacon have stepped in to handle Frey’s vocals and guitar work to great acclaim. While live dates are planned, any studio recordings are unlikely.

Jimmy Buffett opened for The Eagles in the 1970’s:

“Only a few people really know how significant Glenn, Don, Irving and the Eagles were to my rise through the ranks of bands trying to achieve just a sliver of the success that they had achieved,” Jimmy said. “After that first night, Glenn and I went on to become close friends, songwriting collaborators and neighbors in Aspen. He and Don were instrumental in getting Irving Azoff to become my manager, and eventually open for the Eagles on the Hotel California tour of America, which was the rocket ship we rode to eventually becoming a headliner.”

Buffett also gave the speech at The Eagles induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
