The Sweet announce final tour
They line up 24 shows across the UK later this year with MUD 2 and the Rubettes
The Sweet will take to the road later this year for a 24-date tour which will “probably” be their last, according to guitarist Andy Scott.
He, along with bassist and vocalist Pete Lincoln, drummer Bruce Bisland and guitarist and keyboardist Tony O’Hara, open the tour in Eastbourne on November 10 and wrap it up in Cheltenham on December 13.
Scott says in a statement: “For Sweet to be going back out on tour in the UK on such a big scale for what will probably be the last time is a real thrill.
“Performing is at the very heart of what we do and though fashions change, our songs have lasted through five decades. When we're up on the stage in front of an audience it's almost as if time has stood still.”
Joining the veteran glam rockers on all 24 dates of the Glitz, Blitz And 70s Hitz tour will be MUD 2 and the Rubettes, featuring original members Alan Williams, John Richardson and Mick Clarke.
The Sweet are currently recording a new album at Real World Studios near Bath and promise further details in the near future.
