The Zombies opened their U.S. tour on Saturday at the Central Park SummerStage with an abbreviated set but played their full show the next night at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center in Rockville, MD.
With the catalogue of the Zombies along with principals Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, the show was filled with songs from throughout all three careers. The Zombies’ three big hits, Tell Her No, She’s Not There and Time of the Season were, of course included along with the opener, I Love You, which was a hit in the states for People.
