THE ANIMALS Announces Their 60th Anniversary “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” – Final Tour Of Australia

The Animals

The Animals’ impact and influence is undeniable. They created some of the most iconic songs in popular music history including – ‘We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, ‘The House of The Rising Sun’, ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’, ‘It’s My Life’, ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ and ‘Boom Boom’ and more all of which will be performed on this Greatest Hits Final Tour

The Animals were “one of the most important bands” in the British Invasion. The Beatles and Rolling Stones were the headliners, whilst The Animals were the backbone of blues! Britannia Ruled the airwaves in 1964. In the front ranks, marching in formation behind the Beatles were The Animals who became the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles.

When the band found a 1956 album by Joe Turner called Boss of the Blues, the guys lifted a couple of numbers off the album and called themselves the Kansas City Five and after many incarnations and members coming and going, finally settled on calling themselves the Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo – later changing their name to The Animals when they moved to London. According to folklore ‘animals’ described their wild stage act and the name stuck.
