THE ANIMALS (UK)
The Animals were “one of the most important bands” in the British Invasion. Whilst The Beatles and Rolling Stones were the headliners, The Animals were the backbone of blues!
With their legacy undeniable, Australia and New Zealand is in for a treat when original members John Steel and Mick Gallagher along with Danny Handley and Scott Whitely bring The Animals live experience performing all their greatest hits Live in concert this coming May 2017 Presented by Metropolis Touring.
The Animals boasts some of the greatest songs in popular music history - 'The House of The Rising Sun', 'We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place', 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood', 'It's My Life', 'Don't Bring Me Down' and 'Boom Boom' (as featured in the James Bond movie, 'Skyfall') to name a few.
"The band has changed, but the songs remain eternal" - The Independent
"The Animals earned their name thanks to their wild stage act. That was 50 years ago and they have calmed down since, but their music has lost none of its vigour" - Wales Online
