The legendary British Invasion band to play full streaming concert at Abbey Road Studios, prep material for new album
2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees The Zombies will present their first and only worldwide streaming event of the year with a live concert from the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London on September 18, 2021 at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT/8pm BST. Get your tickets here.
With all their touring plans postponed to 2022 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Zombies jumped at the chance to do a “world tour” in one night.
“We’re really excited for this opportunity to reconnect with our fans”, says lead singer Colin Blunstone, “and especially to reach places around the globe like Australia and South America, where we’ve never had the chance to play live before!”
The group will be combining old favorites with the opportunity to try out some new songs during the concert as well. The current lineup–comprised of singer Blunstone and keyboardist Argent, along with Steve Rodford (drums), Tom Toomey (guitar) and Søren Koch (bass)–have been hard at work in the studio during these months in quarantine working on material for the follow-up to their 2015 album Still Got That Hunger.
“Of course I know these last fifteen months have been testing for everybody,” said Argent. “What’s suddenly feeling terrific for us though, is at last being able to continue the recording of our new album! We pretty much just completed the fifth song, and there are already three more currently in the pipeline to be rehearsed and recorded. The initial reaction to the completed tracks has been great, and the feeling of excitement is almost like starting again!”
After receiving their 4th nomination in 5 years, and with a groundswell of support from both the public and their peers, The Zombies joined Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, and Roxy Music as the 2019 Class of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Meanwhile, “Time of the Season” continues to permeate popular culture, featured in an online promotional film for the launch of Chelsea Football Club’s new home kit line, and emblazoned on an exclusive T-shirt debuting at Urban Outfitters this July.
Look out for the new Zombies album and concert dates in 2022!
