Once the word was out, the excitement was building as Huey Lewis and The News made the line up at the 2018 Norsk Høstfest.

Unfortunately, Huey Lewis has canceled the Minot show and the remaining shows for the year.

Huey Lewis and The News dominated the Top 40 charts in the 80's with hits such as 'Jacobs Ladder, 'I Want a New Drug', and 'The Power of Love'.

The leader and front man of the band, Huey Lewis, 67, was diagnosed with Meniere's disease, which is a condition that effects a persons hearing. In a press release, Huey Lewis stated he has lost a majority of his hearing and makes it almost impossible to sing with his band.

Huey Lewis wants to sincerely apologize to all the fans who've already bought tickets and were planning to coming to North Dakota.

Norsk Høstfest hope to announce a Friday night replacement concert soon.
