PAC Director, Janet Farmer, said: “An act of this calibre really needs no introduction.”

“PAC has hosted many of the great heritage bands over the years including The Searchers, The Manfreds, The Blues Band, PJ Proby, and Marty Wilde so we are delighted to welcome The Animals whose hits endure to this day.”

“It’s their farewell tour this could very well be your last chance to see them live on stage. It’s a very special opportunity not to be missed.”
