The Zombies Plan US and UK Tour

The four surviving members of the Zombies from the 60’s are reuniting for a fall tour of the U.S. and U.K. where they will play the classic Odyssey & Oracle in its entirety.

Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent have been touring together for a number of years but, for this tour, will be joined by Chris White and Hugh Grundy. The fifth member of the band, Paul Atkinson, died in 2004.

The original members did reunite in 1997 for a short time and the four surviving members came together in 2008 to perform the album in London, a performance that was turned into an official release. This will be the first time for all four to tour the U.S. performing the whole album.

The Zombies originally formed in 1961 with Paul Arnold playing bass. White joined in 1962 after Arnold left to go to medical school. They scored their first hit in 1964 with She’s Not There (#2 U.S. / #12 U.K.) and, later in the year, followed up with Tell Her No (#6 U.S. / #42 U.K.).

The band broke up in late 1967 before Odessey and Oracle was released. Their label had no intention to release the album but Al Kooper convinced them to put it out. Initially, the album didn’t do well but, almost a year later in early 1969, the track Time of the Seasons was released going to number 3 in the U.S.

In addition to Odessey and Oracle, it is expected that the band will play other songs from the sixties. Current band members Tom Toomey, Jim Rodford and Steve Rodford will also be on the tour for the band to play music from their upcoming album, Still Got That Hunger which will be out in September.
