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 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. They were also the first British band to tour Japan and Poland.

That was then, This is now...

After forty years the legend still grows. The line-up may have changed but the raw energy that burned in the souls of those five young guys forty years ago still burns as strong today in the surviving members and The Animals still perform to hysterical fans all over the world.

On the British dates the band will be joined on stage by ex original members of The Kinks, The Hollies and The Tremeloes all celebrating forty years in the music business. The show spans their collective careers and including songs from across their repertoires.
