Huey Lewis plans to sing the National Anthem at the 49ers game on January 12.
This weekend's strangest musical double bill comes courtesy of the 49ers playoff opener against the Green Bay Packers, held on January 12 at Candlestick Park. Former San Francisco-based hitmakers Huey Lewis and the News will sing the National Anthem, while Vallejo rapper E-40 will rhyme for halftime.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Huey Lewis and the News' multi-platinum selling album Sports, a milestone the band plans to celebrate on the road throughout the year. Meanwhile, E-40 recently released a double album of songs called History with longtime colleague, Oakland rapper Too $hort.
While tickets are sold out for the game, the Mercury-News reports that some might be available via NFL Ticket Exchange; the action will also be broadcast on television via Fox and on various radio stations including 107.7 The Bone.
