BOSTON (WFSB) -

There is some sad news for fans of Huey Lewis & The News.

The band has canceled the rest of its 2018 performances.

Lead singer Huey Lewis says it's because he's lost most of his hearing just before a show in Dallas.

He said he's working with his doctors to improve his condition, but will need to take a break before his hits the stage again.

“The doctors believe I have Meniere’s disease and have agreed that I can’t perform until I improve. Therefore the only prudent thing to do is to cancel all future shows,” Huey posted on his Facebook page.

The band had a performance scheduled for this summer at Fenway Park.
