The first time I heard the name "Huey Lewis and the News" was when a friend asked me if I wanted to go see them in concert. It was 1981. I looked at him and asked, "Who the heck is Huey Lewis and The News?" In '81 I was listening bands like: REO Speedwagon, Styx, The Police and Journey. The name made me think a band from the 50's. I told my friend I would pass. It was a decision I lived to regret.
Last year I heard that Daryl Hall and John Oates would be touring and coming to The Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH (about two hours where I live.) I had plans to go and was about to look online for some tickets when a friend of mine emailed me and made my day.
