The Animals III
In 2017, over 16 years since the break up of The Animals and Animals II in 2001, three of the original and founder band members of 'Hilton Valentine's Animals', 'The Animals', and 'Animals II' (who were ultimately responsible for the successful reincarnation of The Animals in the 1990's featuring Hilton Valentine and John Steel) still all continue to perform and tour together, keeping the 40 year heritage of the band based within its Tyneside roots, and continue their legacy of The Animals with the third Generation of the band.

Freddie & The Dreamers emerged as part of the '60s British Pop Invasion, good-natured and up-beat Manchester clowns scoring a number of hits on both sides of the Atlantic including If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody, I'm Telling You Now and You Were Made For Me'. The band toured until 1968 and broke up not too long after that. Frontman Freddie Garrity reformed an all-new Freddie and the Dreamers in 1976, the band continued to tour until Garrity's retirement in 2000 due to ill-health, when they changed their name to The Dreamers.
