SWEET: Full Circle - December 2023 UK Tour

Sweet, the iconic Glam Rock band, is going Full Circle as they announce their 13-date tour across the UK in December 2023. This article will take a closer look at the band’s history, legacy, and what to expect from their upcoming tour.

Sweet is a band that needs no introduction. They have been a national treasure and Glam Rock royalty for six decades, taking the world by storm with their music. The band’s original guitarist and vocalist, Andy Scott, is the sole surviving member at the heart of the band, and he is still fiercely protective of their legacy today as ever.

Sweet’s Legacy

Sweet’s legacy spans over 50 years of hit singles, 55 million albums sold, and 34 No.1s, making them one of the most successful and influential bands in rock history. Their music perfectly captured the essence of the ’70s, with hits like ‘Blockbuster,’ ‘Ballroom Blitz,’ ‘Fox on the Run,’ ‘Little Willy,’ and ‘Teenage Rampage,’ among many others. Sweet perfected the art of making memorable records in a highly-competitive era.

The Band’s Current Lineup

Andy Scott is still an essential part of Sweet’s present line-up, along with Paul Manzi (lead vocals), Bruce Bisland (drums, vocals), Lee Small (bass guitar, vocals), and Tom Cory (guitar, keyboards). They are a group of seasoned musicians who have made an impact in the charts with recent single releases.

Sweet’s Full Circle Tour

Sweet’s Full Circle Tour kicks off in Wrexham and ends in Frome, Wiltshire. The tour promises to be an unforgettable experience for all fans of the band. The setlist will include hits from their breakthrough song ‘Co-Co’ in 1970 to 1978’s ‘Love is like Oxygen’ and all points between and beyond. The tour will also feature some instant nostalgia with unforgettable classics such as ‘The Ballroom Blitz,’ ‘Hellraiser,’ ‘Action,’ and ‘Wig-Wam Bam.’

The Future of Sweet

Andy Scott has hinted that this could be the band’s last tour, but they are not going to retire completely. The band might not be doing 15-20 dates strung together, but they will still be performing at gigs. It’s essential to enjoy this tour as it could be the last chance to witness Sweet’s live performance.
