'Sports' 30th Anniversary Tour: Huey Lewis & The News
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of 'Sports' by Huey Lewis and The News – one of the most influential and celebrated albums in pop/rock history. To commemorate the milestone the band will embark on their Sports 30th Anniversary World Tour, including two UK dates. The band will be performing tracks from 'Sports', plus many other hits and surprises.
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.
Huey Lewis said: "We've always been very proud of the record and it's going to be a blast to play it all live!"
Huey Lewis and The News have overseen a remastered and expanded 30th Anniversary Edition of the album, to be released in May by Capitol/UMe. 'Sports (30th Anniversary Edition)' pairs each of the album's nine songs with choice live versions, many of which have never before been released.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
'80s American rock group whose song 'Power Of Love' provided the theme tune for the Back To The Future films. 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." - The New York Times
