Eric Burdon and The Animals
Fred Kavli Theatre, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza - Thousand Oaks
Eric Burdon, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member since 1994 and named one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine, has one of the most distinctive and soulful voices in rock and roll. An accomplished painter, author, recording artist and a traveling bluesman, he was the driving force of the Animals, which helped lead the British Invasion with their first international hit, “House of the Rising Sun.” Hailing from Newcastle, England, The Animals formed in 1963. After splitting in 1969, various incarnations of the band kept playing together under the same name and are still playing live today.
