With more than a dozen Billboard Top 10 hits to their name, two-time Grammy Award winners Huey Lewis and The News bring their signature sound to the River Spirit Event Center Friday, April 11 at 7 PM.
The San Francisco-based band, which rocketed to fame in the 1980s with a string of hit singles, is entering their 35th year together and continue to entertain audiences worldwide.
“Huey Lewis and The News has been one of our most-requested acts, and we’re excited they will be performing at the Event Center” said General Manager, Jerry Floyd. “They are guaranteed to put on a fun show.”
Huey Lewis and The News have sold over 20 million albums and written classic Top Ten Hits including “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”. “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” were featured in the movie Back To The Future starring Michael J. Fox. “The Power of Love” was nominated for an Academy Award.
The band’s love of live music comes through in their live performances. Huey Lewis adds a bluesy tone to each performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos. A cappella rendition of early rock ‘n roll classics “It’s Alright”, “Little Bitty Pretty One” and “Sixty Minute Man” are highlights of the show.
