Tony La Russa's Stars to the Rescue

6:30 p.m. Sunday, January 18. The Chaifetz Arena, on the campus of Saint Louis University, 1 South Compton Avenue



Huey Lewis has some explaining to do. For starters, in his mega-hit "The Heart of Rock & Roll," Lewis name checks nearly every American city except St. Louis. Come on — you can mention Baton Rouge and San Antonio but not the cradle of blues music? Huey Lewis and his famous News will make it up to us by playing Tony La Russa's Stars to the Rescue, the Cardinals skipper's annual benefit for the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). Huey will share the stage with country crooner Vince Gill, REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin and Dave Amato and comedians Lewis Black and local gal Kathleen Madigan.
