The Zombies 1/13/21

The Zombies — featuring co-founders Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone have rescheduled their fall 2020 North American dates for this coming spring. As it stands now, the band kicks things off on this side of the pond on May 29th in Jeffersonville, Indiana at Abbey Road on the River with the eight-show run wrapping on June 26th at Everett, Washington’s Historic Everett Theatre.

Back in 2019, backstage at the band’s Rock Hall induction, Rod Argent told us that the way he and Colin Blunstone go about their work with the Zombies hasn’t changed over the decades: [“We play with the same passion now that we did when we were 18-years-old. And, um, of course it’s the original guys here that are being inducted. We always approach what we’re doing exactly the same way as we did when we first started out. We still get completely energized by being able to write new music, record it, and play it in front of appreciative audiences. Y’know, that’s still the excitement that we feel.”] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . that we feel)

The Zombies kick off their 2021 dates on April 16th in Trondheim, Norway.
