Huey Lewis & The News have canceled their 2018 tour dates due to Lewis' hearing loss, which is to the point where the frontman has lost “most” of his hearing.

"Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing," Lewis wrote in a statement posted on Twitter. "Although I can still hear a little, one on one and on the phone, I can't hear music well enough to sing.”

Lewis reported that hearing becomes more or less distorted according to the pitch of the sound.

“The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch,” he added. “The doctors believe I have Meniere's Disease and have agreed that I can't perform until I improve."

Meniere's disease affects the inner ear and "causes episodes in which you feel as if you're spinning (vertigo), and you have fluctuating hearing loss with a progressive, ultimately permanent loss of hearing, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear,” according to the Mayo Clinic.

Fans wished Lewis the best and offered support.
