Huey Lewis and the News are truly one of America’s great rock and roll bands. As they enter their 37th year together, their contagious brand of music has outlasted countless trends and is as fresh today as ever. Formed from two rival San Francisco 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 “The 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 group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back to the Future. “The Power of Love," nominated for an Academy Award, went to number one on the Billboard singles chart and was a smash hit worldwide.
