The bar band that ruled the 1980s
Huey Lewis and The News have been defying the rock world for over three decades and will be hitting the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee, WI, August 4, 2018
. The group celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2009, and it's their contagious brand of straight-ahead rock n' roll that has seen them selling well over 20 million albums worldwide in the process. These Grammy Award winners were behind the iconic "The Power of Love," that featured heavily in 1985's Back to the Future. In 2013, the band re-released Sports in a special 30th anniversary edition, the album that catapulted them to fame.
POP CULTURE ICONS
Another movie that the group are associated with is American Psycho, where their single "Hip To Be Square" featured in a now-infamous scene in killer Patrick Bateman's apartment, featuring Jared Leto and an axe. Initially so unhappy with the association that he pulled the song from the official soundtrack because of the violence, Huey finally got sweet vengeance in 2013 when he teamed up with Weird Al Yankovic in a perfectly pitched parody of the scene, for comedy site "Funny Or Die".
