Eric Burdon And the Animals at the Paramount February 6, 2016

This is the front of the promotional post card that the paramount put out advertising the Eric Burdon & the Animals concert that was presented on Saturday, February 6, 2016.  
Thinking that photographs were discouraged, I did not bring my camera.  But my friend has his phone with him.  I've got to get used to the idea that event photos are welcomed.  There was a notice on one of the Jumbotrons stating the Paramount's  eagerness to put still photos on their web site.
 Anyway, here are the two pics that we got of the really energetic Burdon having a great time flying around the stage and singing like fifty years has not ever passed!  The Conga drums, the Bongo drums, the two drum setups were amazing, and their beat brought us all back to the days.
I have to remark that the keyboard man, was amazing.  Some of their songs that were refreshed and revived were: House of the Rising Sun, Don' Let Me Be Misunderstood, pit the Wine, Boom Boom, We Gotta Get out of this Place.  
Next month Meat Loaf will play the Paramount and  I will bring my camera to that concert.  The audiences at the Paramount really get into and behind the performers.  They sing, jump around, and generally appreciate the longevity of the careers these artists  seem to have achieved gracefully.
The reverse of the promotional card.  This one should be another main event!  Go Paramount.  So glad that you came to Huntington, Long Island!
