The Zombies in 2021

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Zombies will present their first and only worldwide streaming event with a live concert from Abbey Road Studios in London on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 12 p.m. PDT/3 p.m. EDT/8pm BST. Tickets are available here.

The British pop pioneers will perform a career-spanning concert in Abbey Road’s Studio Two, returning five decades later to the space where they recorded their seminal album Odessey and Oracle in 1967. This event coincides with the start of Abbey Road’s 90th anniversary celebrations. The concert will be broadcast by Veeps.com.

The concert will be followed by an online Q&A Session from Abbey Road with founding members Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone. The band will field questions from a music journalist and a virtual audience of surprise celebrity guests.

“We’re really excited for this opportunity to reconnect with our fans,” said lead singer Colin Blunstone in a press release, “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 band’s touring plans have been postponed to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic

The band is also excited to try out some new songs during the concert. With this forced break from touring, the Zombies’ current lineup—singer Blunstone and keyboardist Argent, along with Steve Rodford (drums), Tom Toomey (guitar) and Søren Koch (bass)—have been pouring their creative energies into recording the long-awaited follow-up to their Billboard-charting 2015 album Still Got That Hunger.

According to Argent, “Of course, I know these last 15 months have been testing for everybody. 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!”
