On August 7, my parents, brother and I visited the Orange County Fair and saw Huey Lewis and the News. They were on tour to promote their new album, Soulsville. They opened with “The Heart of Rock n’ Roll” and then, along with their backup singers, sang some songs from their new album.
One thing that bothered me was Huey’s attitude! He seemed annoyed to have to play all of the hits that made them famous and successful, which I didn’t appreciate. I can understand that he might be tired of playing the same songs for twenty years… but come on. Those songs are what made you famous. Be gracious about it.
Overall, we had a really good time at the concert. They even did an a Capella portion of their songs. The concert was a gift for my Dad for his birthday, and he had a good time, so that’s all that matters!
