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).

About Limehouse Lizzy
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.
