Huey Lewis and the News return to Rock Band DLC next week

by: Dan -
Those of us that were out of diapers in the early 1980’s will have a new drug in the Rock Band store next week, as Harmonix is releasing a three-pack of Huey Lewis and the News songs via DLC. All three songs will feature keyboard (synthesizer?) support and “I Want a New Drug” will offer Pro Guitar/Bass expansion as well. The other two songs are “Do you believe in Love” and “The Heart of Rock and Roll”, and I imagine all will offer up some challenging 1980’s pop rock to play.

Pricing will be $5.49/440 MS Pts/550 Wii Pts for “Huey Lewis and the News Pack 01”, $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts per song and the usual $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade.

Huey Lewis and the News – “Do You Believe in Love” O
Huey Lewis and the News– “The Heart of Rock & Roll” O
Huey Lewis and the News– “I Want a New Drug” X O
Tracks marked with “O” feature support for keyboards; tracks marked with “X” will offer Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
