The Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock

"The Ball Room Blitz" by The Sweet

Period:
20th Century
Description:
The most infamous event associated with the Palace Theatre occurred in 1973. Chart-topping glam-rockers, ‘The Sweet’, were driven offstage, at the Grand Hall, by a barrage of bottles. Far from harming the band, they wrote the single ‘Ballroom Blitz’ about their experience. The single went on to become their greatest hit and is still a well known track today.
