The Zombies To Perform After 40 Years

The Zombies To Perform After 40 Years

Classic 60s St Albans pop rock group the Zombies have announced that they will be reuniting next year, forty years after disbanding.

The remaining living members are to play two special shows in London, 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 and 8, 2008.

Incredibly, original members Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent, Chris White and Hugh Grundy 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.

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

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."

They will also incorporate solo material from Colin Blunstone's acclaimed album "One Year" backed by a string section, as well as Rod Argent & Chris White’s superb Argent hits.

"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.
