Huey Lewis cancels all 2018 dates due to hearing loss

Huey Lewis cancels all 2018 dates due to hearing loss

Some of his hearing has returned, but he says he can't hear the music well enough to sing.

In a tweet posted Friday, Lewis said he lost most of his hearing before a scheduled performance in Dallas more than two months ago.

The 67-year-old Grammy Award victor said he has seen at least three specialists, who believe he has Meniere's disease. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch. He will be concentrating on getting better so that one day he can perform again.

Lewis, best acknowledged for his hit Power Of Love from the Once more To The Future soundtrack, acknowledged he had visited various clinics "hoping to look out an answer" to his indicators.

According to the NHS, Meniere's disease can cause hearing loss, tinnitus and vertigo. Needless to say, I feel frightful about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who've already bought tickets and were planning to come see us.

"The docs think about I've Meniere's sickness and have agreed that I'm unable to hold out until I improve", he added.

It's a somewhat mysterious condition, often the result of a viral infection. The disease can affect only one ear or spread to both.

Other musicians and singers who have experienced the disease include Ryan Adams, who was forced to take a two-year break from music starting in 2009 due to the disease, Broadway musical superstar Kristin Chenoweth, and rapper Foxy Brown, who talked about it to People in 2005.

Lewis went on to explain that he has being seeking help for the situation.
