On the 9th February 1997 BRIAN CONNOLLY lead singer with 70s glam gods THE SWEET sadly passed away. We were approached by his ex-wife Marilyn and asked to stage a memorial show with the proceeds being used to purchase a memorial plaque.
So on the 8th November 1998, the Camden Palace in London threw open its doors to host a special memorial show.
