Huey Lewis and the News booking
Huey Lewis and the News are an American rock band based in San Francisco, California. They had a
run of hit singles during the 1980s and early 1990s, eventually scoring a total of 19 top-ten singles
across the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary and Mainstream Rock charts.
The News combined a rock (and sometimes, a “blues rock”) backing with soul and doo-wop-influenced
harmony vocals and Lewis’s voice. Their greatest success was in the 1980s with their third LP, the
number-one album, ”Sports.” “Sports” slowly became a number-one hit in 1984 and multi-platinum
success in 1985.
Four singles from the album reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100: “Heart and Soul” reached
No. 8, while “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” and “If This Is It” all reached No. 6. The
album has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone.Their song “The Power of Love” was a
number-one U.S. hit and featured in the 1985 film “Back to the Future,” for which they also recorded
the theme song, “Back in Time”.
“The Power of Love” was nominated for an Academy Award.
Huey Lewis and the News released Fore! in 1986. “Fore!” followed the success of “Sports” and
reached number-one on the Billboard 200. The album spawned the number-one singles, “Stuck with
You” and “Jacob’s Ladder” as well as the mainstream rock hit “Hip to Be Square”. In all, the album had
five top-ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified triple platinum. All five albums released
by the band between 1982 and 1991 reached the Top 30 on the Billboard 200 album chart and have
been certified either Gold, Platinum, or Multi-platinum. To date the band has sold over an estimated 30
million records worldwide. They won two Grammy Awards, both in 1986.
