The Zombies Are Hitting the Road This August
Legendary ’60s rock band the Zombies have just announced that they’ll be going on a short tour to finish out the summer. The guys will kick things off this side of the pond on August 6 with a show at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA. From there, it’s another show in Massachusetts, followed by a show at B.B. Kings Blues Club in New York on August 8 and another in Annapolis, MD, on August 9. They’ll then go on to perform throughout the Northeast, with shows in New Jersey, upstate New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. They’ll hit the West Coast with a show at San Diego’s House of Blues on August 20 and then go on to play the Santa Monica Pier on August 21 and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on August 23, before finishing up on August 24 at San Francisco’s Stern Grove Festival.
Most famously active in the mid-1960s, the Zombies scored a variety of rock hits like “She’s Not There,” “Tell Her No,” and arguably their most recognizable song “Time of the Season.” Their 1968 album Odessey and Oracle was ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the top 100 greatest albums of all time. The band split in 1968, but reunited in various forms the ’90s and 2000s. Their current lineup includes original vocalist Colin Blunstone and original organist Rod Argent.
