Featuring from the original Animals – John Steel & Mick Gallagher (The Blockheads), Danny Handley and Roberto Ruiz.

In 1964 a wave of new energetic rock and roll swept over the youth of the world. On the crest of this wave was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and of course The Animals. From the banks of the River Tyne came the North East’s offering; a brand of rhythm n blues that the whole world seemed to grasp greedily.

The Animals were the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles with the now multi-million selling and legendary anthem, ‘House of the Rising Sun’. The band subsequently achieved over twenty global Top Ten hit records, many of which gained the Number One slot in various parts of the world. In Britain alone, the band had no less than twelve chart entries. The Animals were the first British band to tour Poland and Japan.

The enduring influence and breadth of appeal of The Animals? music continues ever onwards. The Animals 1964 debut was recently included in Classic Rock magazines’ feature – “50 Albums That Built Blues Rock”.

2012 marked founder member John Steel’s 55th year as performing musician. Back in 1957 he and The Animals co-founder Eric Burdon began plying their trade in and around their native Tyneside with not the slightest inking that they would – in a very few years – find themselves part of a group that would be forever bracketed with the very best of British music – The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds – and respected all over the world. The Animals were also the second British band after The Beatles to top the American charts with their multi-million selling anthem, “House of The Rising Sun”.

Animals & Friends recent “Prehistoric” album features recordings of the songs that so inspired John Steel and Eric Burdon as they grew up on Tyneside.

Russia, Portugal, Holland, Germany, Spain, Sweden – all are just a small sample of touring locations in recent years, proving that the appeal of The Animals’ music is as strong as ever. As The Independent noted recently –

“Though the band has changed, the songs remain eternal… alongside covers of Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker classics, they ensure that the nostalgic element comes with an enjoyably abrasive edge”.

Please note – this is an unreserved seating concert.
