British Legends The ANIMALS

Pizza Express Live Holborn, WC1V 6LF, [Venue Details]

Featuring from the original Animals John Steel and Mick Gallagher (The Blockheads), plus Danny Handley and Roberto Ruiz. 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 River Tyne came the North East's offering; a brand of rhythm'n'blues that the whole world seemed to grasp greedily.

Bruce Springsteen recently revealed on stage in the USA that it was The Animals, not The Beatles or the Stones who were his favourite British Invasion band." Their singles were the first full-blown class-consciousness I'd ever heard". After playing a short burst of 'We Gotta Get Out Of This Place', Springsteen then confessed: “That’s every song I’ve ever written. 'Born To Run', 'Born In The USA', all of them".
