The Zombies legendary album ‘Odessey & Oracle’ will be toured in full from Jamaica through North America and even onto Primavera festival in Spain next year.
The Zombies will give North American fans and beyond one last opportunity to hear the group’s 1968 masterpiece ‘Odessey & Oracle’ live and in its entirety during a major spring/summer tour.
The group’s surviving members – singer Colin Blunstone, keyboardist Rod Argent, bassist Chris White and drummer Hugh Grundy – will kick off their next stretch of dates March 1st on a Flower Power Cruise through the Caribbean and then onwards from March 17th in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
As the Zombies wrote on Facebook, 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the band recording ‘Odessey & Oracle’; the album wasn’t released until April 1968, four months after the band had broken up. As a result, the band’s original members never performed the album’s tracks live together until their 2015 reunion tour.

In addition to the tour, the Zombies will release an album-sized coffee table book in March 2017 about the making of Odessey & Oracle, featuring handwritten lyrics and artwork from artist Terry Quirk, who painted the album cover (and infamously misspelled the album title).
