Huey Lewis Thinks It’s Nice That Phish is Considering Sports

If anyone was wondering what Huey Lewis and The News thought about Phish potentially covering their classic album Sports, they now have an answer. The band posted a tweet from their verified account today that links to an article on the subject, along with some text that reads, “This could be a @Phish fake out, but it is still nice to be considered.”

As previously reported, fans that watched the live webcast of Phish’s Wednesday night performance at the Glens Falls Civic Center were treated to a goofy video that provided some “clues” about the album that the band will cover during their Halloween show. The hints all pointed to Huey Lewis and The News’ 1984 release Sports, but, as Lewis seems to understand, there’s a good chance the band is just pulling our leg.
