The Zombies Regroup After Almost 50 Years to Perform Classic 1967 Album on Tour
Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent, Chris White and drummer Hugh Grundy are hitting the road again for the first time in almost 5 decades. The group is to perform their 1967 album in full this Fall 2015.
The official Twitter page for The Zombies announced the news on Monday, July 20, 2015.
The group split just a year after the release of the groundbreaking album.
The Odessey & Oracle tour will begin in Dallas, Texas on September 30, 2015, and culminate at the iconic Fillmore venue in San Francisco, California on October 27, 2015.
The group also took the Instagram to share the exciting news.
ANNOUNCEMENT: USA, this has been a long time coming. It has been 5 decades since the original Zombies’ line-up last toured the States. Our final album together was released in 1968, but we never got a chance to perform it live for our American fans. Starting on September 30th in Dallas, that is all going to change!!!! That’s right! The Zombies are returning to the USA, and bringing some special friends – the incredible Chris White and Hugh Grundy – to perform “Odessey & Oracle” in it’s entirety! The original line-up (minus the sorely-missed Paul Atkinson) will join the current line-up for a very special evening of Zombies music, past and present. Whether you missed us in the 1960’s, or just discovered us yesterday, we hope you can join us on this journey today! See a sneak peek of the tour schedule (and we hope to add a couple shows more if we can!) on our @facebook Page!! Stay tuned for ticket information – most shows will go on sale this week. #TheZombies #BritishInvasion #OdesseyAndOracle
