British psychedelic pop band The Zombies will be playing in Margate to celebrate the release of their latest Billboard-charting album, Still Got That Hunger.
Performing will be founding and current members, vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist Rod Argent, alongside Steve Rodford on drums, and renowned session guitarist Tom Toomey. New member, Søren Koch, joined the band following the untimely passing of The Zombies’ bassist Jim Rodford in early 2018.
The band’s live performances take fans on a journey from their early hits, including the 1968 Odessey & Oracle to today with Still Got That Hunger.
The Zombies hit singles include She’s Not There and Tell Her No.
Ironically, the group broke-up just prior to achieving their greatest success – chart-topping single Time of the Season, from their swan-song album Odessey & Oracle.
Following the break-up of the original band, lead vocalist Colin Blunstone went on to develop a solo career and keyboardist/songwriter Rod Argent rocked ‘70’s arenas with his eponymous band. By the start of the new Millennium, Blunstone and Argent were inspired to resurrect The Zombies.
The Zombes will be supported by Arc, made up of Anja, Russell and Cara Rodford – two sisters and their uncle.
They will perform at the Theatre Royal, Margate, on Friday, June 8 at 7.30p,
