Following their sold-out Still Got the Rock European Tour legendary 70’s rock band The Sweet embark upon the perfect Christmas gift for their UK fans, a sixteen date nationwide tour starting November 28th until December 21st. With over fifty five million records sold worldwide, thirty four number one hits worldwide, Sweet continue to tour and perform to sell out audiences around the globe.

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.

In 1975 the USA had discovered the band with Fox On The Run hitting the number three spot in the Billboard 100. Another self-penned hit Action followed in 1976 firmly establishing The Sweet in the US charts.

On the face of it they were primarily a singles band however with 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 original 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. After a couple of line-up changes over the years, since 2006 the line-up has been primarily unchanged from what it is today.

The Band comprises Andy Scott (lead guitar, vocal), Bruce Bisland (drums, vocal) Tony O’Hora (lead vocal, bass) and Paul Manzi (guitar, keyboards, vocal). The Sweet still tour the world extensively with one of the most dynamic and slick live shows on the circuit.
