    The show is from Sweeney Entertainments, which was co-founded by Julie and Peter Sweeney. It has provided a repertoire of touring shows for theatre and corporate events for over 15 years both in the UK and internationally. 2017 was the company’s strongest year to date with more shows touring than ever before and 2018 brings even more new shows and UK tour dates.

    Julie said: “This is the first all-female rock show to tour the UK, celebrating the biggest and best female rock stars in a non-stop concert that is bursting with energy and passion!”

    Sara Louise, performer and musical director, said about the show: “We try to take the audience on a journey through the ages, but not with all the obvious choices that other rock shows would be covering. The songs are performed authentically and with passion - you’ll be extremely entertained!”
