If this is it
In a statement on Twitter Friday, Lewis shared that he has lost most of his hearing. He can’t hear music well enough to sing.
Multiple doctors have agree that Lewis should stop performing. The tour schedule had Huey and the News performing Outside Lands this summer with several other shows across the country.
“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,” he added. “I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.”
