The Sweet with special guests Limehouse Lizzy

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. 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 34 number 1 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’.

In 1975 the USA had discovered the band with ‘Fox on the’ Run hitting the number 3 spot in the Billboard 100. Another self-penned hit ‘Action’ followed in 1976 firmly establishing Sweet in the US charts. The Sweet still 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.

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).
