The SBJs were loudly booed throughout their act at the Finsbury Park Astoria. I also attended the last gig of the tour at the Hammersmith Odeon by which time they had been replaced by Gene Vincent. Some replacement!
Chuck was backed by King Size Taylor and the Dominos (a Liverpool group)who also had their own spot. Carl Perkins was backed by the Nashville Teens who had their own spot. Wonder how long these two had to rehearse with these unfamiliar musicians?
And as you say, The Animals - first time most people had heard 'House of the Rising Sun', shortly afterwards released as a single.
