The Animals & Friends 50th Anniversary Tour

After 13 years they return to Australia Direct from the UK -The Animals return to Australia for the 50th Anniversary Tour.

Who can forget the hits “House of the Rising Sun” “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” “Don’t Bring Me Down” “It’s My Life” “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place”…

The Animals were one of the most important British bands of the 1960s. The group is widely considered the raunchiest, the dirtiest, and the most authentic and uncompromisingly raw band of their time.

Formed in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, the Animals reflected their earthy upbringing with hard-charging, blues-based rock ‘n roll, deriving much of their early repertoire from American Blues and R&B sources – including (though they barely knew it) from Steve Cropper himself. The Animals’ career took off in January 1964. With the release of House of the Rising Sun later that year, the Animals became the first British group after the Beatles to chart a Number One single in the USA.

Their brooding arrangement of House of the Rising Sun – a traditional folk song recorded by Josh White and Bob Dylan became an early milestone in the British Invasion of the USA. House of the Rising Sun topped the American and British charts. In fact, it stayed at #1 in the U.S. for three weeks – longer than any single since the Beatles’ Can’t Buy Me Love held down the top spot a half-year earlier.

The Animals followed House of the Rising Sun with seven more massive hits, at least four of which – Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, We Gotta Get out of This Place, It’s My Life and Don’t Bring Me Down – remain classics of the era.
