The Zombies Live Music & Concerts


‘Celebrating the 50th anniversary of ‘Odessey and Oracle’, uniting all four surviving members of the group with Colin Blunstone on lead voca

Young and old fans alike, have celebrated the career of a band hailed in the USA as leaders of the British Invasion, a musical institution and prominent influencers for modern bands today.

‘Odessey & Oracle’ is the glittering gemstone in the bands rock crown. With ‘Odyssey’, spelt incorrectly following a printer error on the original artwork, The Zombies infiltrated the airwaves with sophisticated melodies, high hitting vocals, choral back-up harmonies and jazzy keyboard riffs. Hit singles throughout the 1960’s followed including ‘She’s Not There’ and ‘Tell Her No’. Ironically, the group broke-up in 1968 just prior to achieving their greatest success with the chart-topping single ‘Time of the Season’. ‘Odessy & Oracle’ came out just after the bands demise and is now ranked by Mojo, NME and Rolling Stone in their ‘Greatest Albums of All Time’ lists. In the intervening years, while lead singer Colin Blunstone went on to develop an acclaimed solo career (‘Say You Don’t Mind’, ‘Misty Roses’), and keyboardist/songwriter Rod Argent rocked ‘70’s arenas with his eponymous band ARGENT (‘Hold Your Head Up’), the legend of The Zombies took on a life of its own. Their music continues to resonate today amongst generations of new bands, including such artists as; Neko Case and Nick Cave (who recorded ‘She’s Not There’ for the popular HBO series True Blood), Paul Weller, The Vaccines, Beck, Belle and Sebastian, Fleet Foxes, The Temples, The Beautiful South and Eminem (Marshall Mathers LP2) to name only a few, along with providing a haunting back drop for Coco Channels worldwide Ad campaign featuring Kiera Knightley.

March 2017 will also see the release of ‘Odessy & Oracle’ The book, published by BMG and Reel Art Press, a glossy coffee table book, which includes handwritten lyrics for all the songs on the album, lavishly illustrated with rarely seen photos from throughout the band’s career. The volume also includes original artwork to accompany the lyrics – from both Terry Quirk who created the iconic cover for ‘Odessey and Oracle’, and Vivienne Boucherat, who created individual works for each O&O song. The book’s text will include anecdotes from the songs and their recording sessions, by the original members, as well as reflections from Brian Wilson, Nate Ruess, Clive Davis, Carlos Santana, Susanna Hoffs, and many others. The Foreword was written by Tom Petty.

A re-mastered, special edition of the album is scheduled for release later this year with further UK, European and festival O&O dates to be announced.
