DIANE STEVENSON — Stanislaus County Fair

— The Heart of Rock & Roll is still beatin’.

And it’ll be pounding hard at the Stanislaus County Fair July 17 when longtime favorite Huey Lewis and The News takes the free stage.

The band has sold more 10 million copies worldwide. Just about everyone who was a teenager in the 1980s likely had a copy of “Sports” the album that included numerous hits, including “I Want a New Drug,” “Walking on a Thin Line,” and “If This Is It.”

The 2013 Stanislaus County Fair opens July 12 for a 10-day run. More information is available online at 111.stancofair.com.
