Sweet - 2nd date added on Wednesday 19th - Thursday 20th December 2018
By the early 70s, The Sweet were arguably the hottest ticket in town with a string of top ten records in the UK & 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. On the face of it they were primarily a singles band however their albums, in particular Desolation Boulevard (1975) & Give Us A Wink (1976) showed a much harder rocking band. The album 'Level Headed' was released in 1978 and brought with it another award winning million selling worldwide hit with 'Love is Like Oxygen' written by Andy Scott. However, in 1979, original lead singer Brian Connolly left the original line up leaving And Scott, Steve Priest, & Mick Tucker to continue as a 3 piece. Sadly both Brian Connolly & Mick Tucker passed away in 1997 & 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 lineup has been primarily unchanged from what it is today. Andy Scott (lead guitar/vocal), Bruce Bisland (drums/vocal), Peter Lincoln (lead vocal/bass), Tony O'Hora (keyboard, guitar/vocal). Sweet still tours the world extensively with one of the most dynamic and slick live shows on the circuit. Sweet - 1968 to 2018 and counting...
