Animals & Friends

Featuring original members of The AnimalsJohn Steel and Mick Gallagher, plus Danny Handley and Roberto Ruiz.

In 1964, a wave of new energetic rock and roll swept over the world. On the crest of this wave was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and, of course, The Animals. Hailing from the banks of the River Tyne, The Animals offered a brand of rhythm n blues that took the world by storm.

They were the second British band to top the US charts after The Beatles with the now legendary anthem, House Of The Rising Sun. The band subsequently achieved over twenty global top 10 hits, many of which going to number #1 across the world. In Britain alone, the band had no less than twelve chart entries.

This intimate live show will feature all the hits including House Of The Rising Sun, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, Boom Boom (as featured in Skyfall), and many more.

After 50 years the legendary Animals sound still endures, and this show by Animals & Friends promises to reaffirm the legacy of the truly iconic band.
