Eric Burdon & the Animals coming to Chatham

Eric BurdonThe Capitol Theatre have announced Eric Burdon & the Animals are coming to Chatham on Saturday, November 22, at 8 p.m.

Burdon has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in rock and roll. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1994, and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Burdon’s music forged new territory while also topping the charts for more than five decades.

Highly prolific, Burdon has released nearly 50 records in those 50 years, as front man of The Animals and WAR and simply as Eric Burdon. Eric Burdon has shared the stage with legends such as Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Witherspoon, Otis Redding and Bruce Springsteen, and recently cited by cutting edge musicians like Patti Smith and Iggy Pop in their personal top tens.

A long string of hits followed, including “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” and the Vietnam-era anthem, “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.” Pioneering the psychedelic San Francisco sound, Burdon’s classics include “San Franciscan Nights” and “Monterey”.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. Prices range from $30 to $50, plus a handling fee.
