The Animals on Tour was the second American studio album by British rock band The Animals. It was released by MGM Records in February 1965 (see 1965 in music).[1] The album included two previously released singles, "I'm Crying" and "Boom Boom".

The album was available in both mono and stereo formats. The songs on the stereo release were all rechanneled,[3] which means that the original songs were mixed in mono and were re-mixed to stereo. Rechanneling often occurred on American releases by British artists.

The album reached #99 on the Billboard 200.[4]
