Sweets sounds the same

Jun 2019 Sweets sounds the same

AFTER Their sold-out “Still Got the Rock” European Tour legendary 70’s rock band SWEET embark on a 16-date nationwide tour November 28 until December 21.

With more than 55 million records sold worldwide, 34 No.1 hits worldwide, by the early 70s The Sweet had a string of Top 10 records in the UK and Europe including Blockbuster, Hellraiser, Ballroom Blitz, Teenage Rampage and The Sixteens.

In 1975, in the USA, Fox on the Run was No.3 in the Billboard 100. Another self-penned hit Action followed in 1976 firmly establishing Sweet in the US charts.

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 it has been primarily unchanged: 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. 1968 to 2019, 51 years and counting of hellraising, star chasing, trail blazing.Tickets: www.thegigcartel.com 24-Hour Box Office: 0844 478 0898.
