Between 1982 and 1988, few bands worked harder than Huey Lewis Lewis and The News. Although the group was made up of seasoned vets, it wasn't until the breakout success of "Do You Believe In Love," a song from their second album, that they began receiving attention outside their home base of San Francisco. Over the coarse of the next six years, the group would perfect their blend of good time rock & roll music, infused with the soul and doo-wop influences of their youth. They would score big with three consecutive platinum albums and an impressive list of hit singles, including three number ones on the Billboard charts. Relentless touring and high rotation exposure on MTV would eventually pay off and the group would become a national headlining act capable of filling the biggest arenas in America.

In 1989 the group finally took some well-deserved time off from their touring and recording schedules with one notable exception. In May of 1989, Bill Graham presented a series of benefit concerts in multiple venues to raise awareness about AIDS and fund research and care for those afflicted in the Bay Area. Huey Lewis and The News took part in this "In Concert Against AIDS" series with a memorable one-off club performance at Slim's in San Francisco, which would not only be their first gig in over four months, but their first club gig in years.

Presented in its entirety, here is that performance. Surrounded by family, friends and a hometown audience, this intimate club gig has it all, including the group's biggest hits and a choice selection of covers. At one point, American Pro Bowl wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, Dwight Clark, joins the group onstage, lending his voice to the doo-wop classic "Working In A Cold Mine." Mark Russo, renowned for his saxophone work with Tower Of Power and The Yellowjackets, also joins in on the final half hour of this remarkable performance.

My wife and I saw them in vegas FANTASTIC SHOW ! I think it was in the late 80s.

Met Huey in Hawai'i at a golf tournament. Very nice guy. Easily accessible. And of course, one of the greatest bands of the 80s. Hope his current hearing situation gets remedied so he can get back out there and keep rockin' it. Keep rockin' Huey!
