The Zombies Add Third London Date

Classic 60s St Albans pop rock group [b]The Zombies[/b] have announced that they will be adding a third date to their run at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire in March.

The Zombies are reuniting next year, forty years after disbanding for just three special shows, performing their 1968 legendary album "Odessey & Oracle" in it's entirety.

The shows will take place at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on March 7, 8, and now 9.

Incredibly, original members [b]Colin Blunstone[/b], [b]Rod Argent[/b], [b]Chris White[/b] and [b]Hugh Grundy[/b] will play the songs from "Odessey & Oracle" for the first time live on stage. They had already disbanded by the time of it's release in 1968.

[b]Keith Airey[/b] will be playing guitar on their tour, replacing the late [b]Paul Atkinson[/b].

The first half of the concert will also see the Zombies' play a selection of their other hits such as '65s "She's Not There" and "Tell Her No."

"Time Of The Season" - from "Odessey & Oracle" has recently seen a resurgence in popularity after being picked up for use in a major advertising campaign for Magners Cider in the UK and Ireland.
