Huey Lewis and the News celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s signature “Sports” album with a performance at Ruth Eckerd Hall Dec. 6.
CLEARWATER – The same year Ruth Eckerd Hall opened its doors, an up and coming musical artist topped the charts with an album that features songs that have become anthems for a generation.

Huey Lewis and the News will perform Friday, Dec. 6, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road.

Tickets start at $49.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com.

Huey Lewis and the News will be performing “Sports,” the groundbreaking album they released 30 years ago.

“What a way to kick-off our 30th anniversary,” said Zev Buffman in a press release. Buffman is Ruth Eckerd Hall president and CEO.

The band’s multi-platinum selling album “Sports” is considered one of the most influential and celebrated albums in pop/rock history. Fans will hear the band perform the songs from the album, plus many other hits and surprises.

More than half of the album’s songs were huge hit singles. The album includes songs such as “The Heart of Rock ‘n Roll,” “Heart & Soul,” “I Want a New Drug,” “Walking on a Thin Line” and “If This Is It.” They all boast memorable hooks and an economical precision.

“Sports” struck a chord with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and won a Grammy as well as a Diamond Award in Canada.

The band will be releasing a special digitally re-mastered 30th anniversary edition of the album, with live bonus tracks.

Huey Lewis and the News are Huey Lewis, vocals and harmonic; Johnny Colla, saxophone, guitar and vocals; Bill Gibson, drums, percussion and vocals; Sean Hopper, keyboards and vocals; Stef Burns, guitars and vocals; John Pierce, bass; Marvin McFadden, trumpet; Rob Sudduth, tenor saxophone; and Johnnie Bamont, baritone saxophone.
