Former lead singer of the influential 1960s group the Animals, Eric Burdon, co-headlined a fiery concert of blues-laced rock with keyboardist Brian Auger Saturday. Although occasionally bubbling over into excess, Burdon, now nearly 50, belted out hits such as “We’ve Got to Get Out of This Place” and “Spill the Wine.”

Auger, who traded solos with deft guitarist Don Kirkpatrick, was electrifying.
