The Sweet Back in Poland

British glam rock legends The Sweet are coming to Poland to give two concerts in Warsaw and Katowice.

The Sweet will first play at the Progresja club in Warsaw and then at the Mega Club in the southern city of Katowice. The two gigs are dates on the band’s NYC World Tour 2013 which The Sweet launched earlier this year. The band are revisiting Poland after they shared the stage with Smokie and Slade at three concerts in March 2011.

The band’s greatest hit to date is “Block Buster” from The Sweet album released in 1973. The single topped the charts in Britain and five other countries. According to the group’s official website, they have sold over 55 million records and had 34 number one hits worldwide.

The group formed in 1968 and was initially known as The Sweetshop. In the early 1970s, the musicians started working with the famous Chinn-Chapman songwriter and producer duo, a move that catapulted them to stardom. The Sweet’s most successful singles were released in the 1970s and songs like “Block Buster,” “Hell Raiser,” “The Ballroom Blitz,” “Teenage Rampage” and “Fox on The Run” earned them the status of glam-rock icons.

After the lineup changed several times in the 1980s, The Sweet stopped playing. In 2009, two of the original members reformed the group and with a new album, Action: The Sweet Anthology, under their belt they embarked on a tour with several new musicians in tow. The new Sweet are Pete Lincoln (lead vocals and bass), Bruce Bisland (drums and vocals), Tony O’Hora (guitar, keyboards and vocals), and Andy Scott (guitar and vocals).

The Sweet gigs promise to be two hours packed with glam rock energy. The support act at the two gigs is the German-Greek-Polish Tri State Corner group.
