Glam titans The Sweet will be bringing their 50-year repertoire to Norwich this weekend.
Having first hit the charts in 1971, the band – which still features original guitarist Andy Scott – will hit the Waterfront on Sunday, December 5, with support from Troy Redfern.
Ahead of their Hellraiser tour, The Sweet released Everything 2021, a new version of a song they originally released in 2002.
“During the rehearsals for the tour, we were trying out various songs from our back catalogue that could be added to the setlist,” said Scott.
“As soon as I heard Paul Manzi and Lee Small’s vocals on Everything, I knew that we needed to get it down and record it as our new single.
“I think the new version is a far superior production. It’s much closer to how I envisaged it when I co-wrote the song back in the day.”
Blues guitarist Redfern is a late addition to the bill, replacing Limehouse Lizzy who have had to step down due to illness.
The tour takes in another East Anglian date later in the month, with a visit to The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Monday, December 20.
