Following the success of their Christmas UK Tour in 2019, legendary 70’s rock band Sweet will once again embark upon a pre-Christmas UK Tour. Originally scheduled for 2020, that tour was postponed. But they are pleased to announce that the tour will now take place and the sixteen date nationwide tour will start on November 25th and end on December 20th. Special guests on the tour will be the popular Thin Lizzy tribute band Limehouse Lizzy

Sweet continue to tour and perform to sell out audiences around the globe with over 55 million records sold worldwide and thirty four number one hits worldwide. By the early 70’s The Sweet were arguably the hottest ticket in town with a string of top ten records in the UK and Europe including Blockbuster, Hellraiser, Ballroom Blitz, Teenage Rampage and The Sixteens.

On the face of it they were primarily a singles band. However, with the landmark albums including Desolation Boulevard (1975) and Give Us a Wink (1976), the band showed a much harder rocking band. The album Level Headed, released in 1978, brought with it another award winning million-selling worldwide hit with Love is Like Oxygen written by Andy Scott.

In 1979, lead singer Brian Connolly left the original line up leaving Andy Scott, Steve Priest and Mick Tucker to continue as a three-piece. Sadly, both Brian Connolly and Mick Tucker passed away in 1997 and 2002 respectively, and with Steve Priest relocating to the USA, Andy Scott was left to fly the flag.

The 2021 line-up features founding member, Andy Scott (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Mann (guitar, keyboards), Bruce Bisland (drums, vocals) Lee Small (bass, vocals) and Paul Manzi (lead vocals).
