Friday, May 18
7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
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’.
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.
