80s hitmaker Huey Lewis cancels all future shows after losing his HEARING due to rare ear disease | Daily Mail Online: "Huey Lewis and the News have cancelled the rest of their shows in 2018 after revealing their frontman lost his hearing earlier this year.
Lewis told fans on Friday he has struggled with hearing loss for two-and-a-half months in a Facebook post.
'Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can't hear music well enough to sing,' the 67-year-old wrote.
After visiting several different ear specialists 'hoping to find an answer', Lewis said his doctors believe he has Meniere's disease, a disorder of the inner ear that a handful of other musicians including Ryan Adams and Kristin Chenoweth have also suffered from.
While working with doctors to understand and treat the hearing loss Lewis will be taking an indefinite break from the stage. There is no cure for Meniere's but it is commonly treated with diuretic pills and a low-salt diet to prevent additional fluid build-up in the ear."
