On Stage

Obelisk Arena


The second UK band following The Beatles to score a #1 hit in America, The Zombies
infiltrated the airwaves with the sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, choral back-up
harmonies and jazzy keyboard riffs of their 1960’s hit singles “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her
No.” Ironically, the original lineup disbanded just prior to achieving their greatest success –
the worldwide chart-topping single “Time of the Season,” from their swan-song album
Odessey and Oracle, ranked in the Top 100 of Rolling Stone’s ‘500 Greatest Albums of All
Time.’ To this day, generations of new bands have cited The Zombies’ work as pop
touchstones, and the band continues to be embraced by new generations of fans.

Following the break-up of the original band, Blunstone went on to develop an acclaimed
solo career, while Argent rocked arenas in the 1970’s with his eponymous band ARGENT,
but the legend of The Zombies continued to take on a life of its own. By the start of the new
Millennium, Blunstone and Argent were inspired to resurrect The Zombies, which has led to
several critically-acclaimed new albums and 2 decades of worldwide concert performances.
