Downtown Rock Hill will be jammed Wednesday night as 1980s rockers Huey Lewis and the News play a sold-out show at the Old Town Amphitheater adjacent to City Hall.

Those who were “Hip to Be Square” when Ronald Reagan was president get a chance to turn back the clock again. The group’s live shows have been a staple for almost four decades.

Black Street from Dave Lyle Boulevard to city hall is closed for the event. Concert staff have already set up the stage and more than a thousand seats.

Black Street is open for pedestrians and purchase of food and drinks and, yes, Huey Lewis official t-shirts.

The group together 38 years had several hits in the early and mid-1980s. They include “Power of Love,” which hit No. 1 and was on the soundtrack of the movie “Back to the Future”.

“Heart of Rock and Roll” and other hits remain classic rock staples.

Gates open at 6 p.m. Huey Lewis will perform after 8 p.m., following an opening act.
