The O2 arena
In the main arena joining headliners Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow will be legendary British glam rock giants Sweet, who during the ‘70s had thirteen Top 20 hits including ‘Blockbuster’, ‘Hell Raiser’, ‘Fox On the Run’ and the evergreen feel-good anthem ‘The Ballroom Blitz’.
The band say, “It has been 40 years since Sweet played shows together with Rainbow in the USA. We therefore look forward to reconnecting where we left off. Both bands have gone through changes but with guitarists Ritchie Blackmore and Andy Scott still performing on stage the legacy remains intact. Most importantly the music especially the hits are still very much part of rock history today.”
