In 1964, with an electrifying brand of globe conquering rhythm and blues, Newcastle band The Animals became the second British act after The Beatles to top the US charts, with the now multi-million selling anthem House of the Rising Sun. They went on to notch up over twenty global Top Ten hit records, charting no less than 15 times in Britain alone with songs including We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, It’s My Life and Don’t Bring Me Down.

The Animals were international sensations - the first British act to tour Poland and Japan - and have influenced generations of musicians, including Bruce Springsteen who labelled them as his greatest inspiration, and Bob Dylan who, rumour has it, went electric after hearing their definitive take on House of the Rising Sun.

Featuring original members John Steel and Mick Gallagher, plus Danny Handley and Roberto Ruiz, Animals & Friends continue to pack concert halls across Europe playing all the classic hits which have lodged them firmly in the public’s affections for nearly 60 years.
