Gene Simmons of KISS says, “Without the Sweet there would not have been a KISS.”

“We wanted to be The Sweet” – Nikki Sixx, Mötley Crüe

“This is the band I wish I had been in.” – Joe Elliot, Def Leppard

By the early 70’s The Sweet were arguably the hottest rock 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.

The Sweet continue to tour the world extensively with one of the most dynamic and slick live shows on the circuit. 1968 to 2020, 52 years and counting of hellraising, star chasing, trail blazing. The Sweet continue to walk loud and proud in the rock and roll universe.

Special guests on this tour are Limehouse Lizzy, arguably the premier tribute to Thin Lizzy, keeping the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.

Don’t miss your chance to rock out to The Sweet and Limehouse Lizzy, on this, the final date of their UK tour.

More biog on the band:

On the face of it The Sweet 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 2020 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).
