Huey Lewis and The News
Huey Lewis and The News
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of one the most influential and celebrated albums in pop / rock history. Peaking at #1 on the Billboard Charts, selling over 10 million copies worldwide, a Grammy Award, and a Diamond Award in Canada, “Sports” is the anthem of a generation.
Over half of the album’s songs (“The Heart of Rock & Roll”, “Heart & Soul”, “I Want a New Drug”, “Walking on a Thin Line”, “If This Is It”) were huge hit singles. They have memorable hooks, and an economical precision.

“Sports” has struck a chord with audiences of all ages and persuasions. So many people have special memories associated with this unique collection of songs. Huey Lewis and the News are releasing a special digitally re-mastered 30th Anniversary edition of the album, with live bonus tracks.

In 2013 Huey Lewis and the News are commemorating the milestone with their “Sports” 30th Anniversary World Tour. Fans will hear the band perform the songs from “Sports”, plus many other hits and surprises. Huey Lewis and the News are: Huey Lewis (vocals and harmonic), Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar and vocals), Bill Gibson (drums, percussion and vocals), Sean Hopper (keyboards and vocals), Stef Burns (guitars and vocals), John Pierce (bass), Marvin McFadden (trumpet), Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone), Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone).

“Masterful practitioners of an eclectic pop-rock that blends the rich harmonies of California rock and the metronomically plucked beat of new wave, with strong rhythm and blues influences, into an ingratiating brew.” - New York Times
