Huey Lewis and the News to Perform at Eisenhower Park Saturday

Eisenhower Park will be the place to be in Nassau County Saturday night.

Huey Lewis and the News will be performing at the park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre free of charge starting at 7:30 p.m.

The concert is part of the pop and rock band’s “Sports” 30th Anniversary Tour. The band will also be releasing a special digitally re-mastered 30th Anniversary edition of the album.

Although the concert is free, the county is encouraging residents to contribute to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund, which helps residents still suffering from Superstorm Sandy.

The theatre is located near parking fields 6 and 6A. There is no seating, so guests are advised to bring blankets or folding chairs to the event.

Concertgoers who arrive early can also pick up a disaster preparedness kit, which will be given away by The Allstate Foundation, Points of Light Foundation and The Long Island Volunteer Center. The 400 kits, which will be given away starting at 5 p.m., includes a hand-crank flashlight, water bottle, dust mask, garbage bags and hand sanitizing wipes, among other items.

“This Good & Ready event is about helping people be more prepared for life’s uncertainties,” said Diana O’Neill, Executive Director of the Long Island Volunteer Center. “Everyone on Long Island can take simple steps to get prepared for a disaster, including taking a few minutes to build a kit that could be invaluable in the case of an emergency.”
