The Animals

Wednesday 3rd May, Blue Smoke, Christchurch
Thursday 4th May, The Tuning Fork, Auckland

Here's The Animals with their 1964 breakthrough version of 'The House Of The Rising Sun'...


PRESS RELEASE:

Legendary band, The Animals, are headed to Auckland for a show at The Great South Pacific Tuning Fork on Thursday 4 May 2017.

Tickets for this show will go on sale 9am, Friday December 16 from Ticketmaster.

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, 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 this May.

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 will also play a South Island show at Blue Smoke (Christchurch) on Wednesday 3 May 2017.
