Huey Lewis & The News (SOLD OUT)
Part of the Festival at Sandpoint series. One of America’s great rock & roll bands, they enter their 35th year together with their contagious brand of music that has outlasted countless trends and is as fresh today as ever. Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling over 20 million albums in the process. These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “I Want a New Drug,” “Hip To Be Square” and “If This Is It.” The 1985 hit film Back to the Future featured the Academy Award-nominated worldwide smash hit “The Power of Love.” As great a recording career as the band has had, there is something extra special about a Huey Lewis & the News live show with frontman Huey Lewis’ unmistakable voice lending itself not just to their hits, but also to bluesy tunes and a cappella renditions of early rock ‘n roll classics like “It’s Alright.” With a love of music that comes through in everything they do, be it their albums, their live performances or the way they interact with their fans, they are truly a band with heart and soul.
Sandpoint’s own Miah Kohal Band will open the evening.
