More than fifty years after they became one of the first British Invasion groups to top the U.S. singles charts with the hit “She’s Not There,” and approaching the golden anniversary of their album, Odessey and Oracle, that is acknowledged as one of the classic pop albums of all time, the Zombies continue their remarkable 21st-century resurgence with a North American tour.  

In 1967 five young men walked into Abbey Road Studios - #3, tinkered with the gear that was left behind from the previous session (by none other than The Beatles’ recording Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band), and set out to make an album their own way.  Of course, they never dreamed the results would loom so large in their lives.  Ironically, although it led to the breakup of the original line-up, Odessey and Oracle produced the groups biggest hit a year later (“Time of the Season”), and became a musical touchstone for generations to come.  50 years later, it brings the four surviving members, Colin Blunstone on lead vocals, Rod Argent on keyboards/vocals, Chris White on bass/vocals, and Hugh Grundy on drums, back together on stage to perform the album in its entirety for the final time.
