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. The 14-date nationwide tour will start on November
30th and end on December 19th
. Special guests on the tour will be the popular Thin Lizzy tribute band
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.
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 ticket in town with a string of top ten records in
the UK and Europe including Blockbuster, Hellraiser, Ballroom Blitz, Teenage Rampage and The
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
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 millionselling 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).
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.
Now entering their 27th year as a professional international touring act, LIMEHOUSE LIZZY,
arguably the premier tribute to THIN LIZZY, continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott
and his band alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.
From an official Billboard and PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, a major
appearance in the BBC 2 ‘Arena’ documentary ‘Into The Limelight (still available on BBC iPlayer) to
actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy
have completed their 26th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.
In keeping with a schedule that includes international tours (UAE, Germany, USA, Scandinavia etc.),
corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest, F1) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The
Clones), they have started 2020 with a string of European tour dates, to go on to what will be an
exhausting year-long schedule concluding with a UK tour with original glam-rock legends, The Sweet.
The Boys are back!
