Iconic British psychedelic pop legends The Zombies are back to celebrate their long-awaited Induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with a new album in the works and their 2022 “Life Is A Merry-Go-Round” Tour.
After receiving their 4th nomination in 5 years, the support for The Zombies’ induction among the public and their peers was undeniable – the band placed 4th in the public online poll with over 330,000 votes, while even fellow nominee John Prine called for their induction before his own in a Billboard interview. On March 29, 2019 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, 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. Fittingly, the Induction Ceremony took place exactly 50 years to-the-day after The Zombies’ classic “Time of the Season” first hit #1 on the charts in America.
The band’s live performances, described by Rolling Stone as “absolutely triumphant”, take fans on a journey through time, from their early hits…their 1968 masterpiece Odessey & Oracle…post-Zombies solo favorites…right to today with brand-new material from their forthcoming album.
The second U.K. 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 group broke-up just prior to achieving their greatest success – the worldwide chart-topping single “Time of the Season,” from their swan-song album Odessey & Oracle, ranked #100 in 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.
The explosive release of Still Got That Hunger proved that Zombies fever is stronger than ever, with premieres at Rolling Stone, Mojo, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian Speakeasy, and Spin, alongside special broadcast performances, including Later…With Jools Holland, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, CBS Saturday Morning and AOL Sessions. Moreover, it marked a historical moment on the Billboard charts, as The Zombies’ critically acclaimed album Odessey And Oracle re-entered the Billboard 100 forty-eight years later at the same time as Still Got That Hunger!
The band’s 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction marked a major triumph in their 5-decade career, but you can be sure they will not rest on their laurels. The Zombies story continues on….!
Classic band at a classic venue is enough reason for me to want to go plus free tickets gives some extra cash to hit The Lamp at The Aladdin Theater before the concert.
Picture this. Driving through lush evergreens, toward a mountain lake in a 60’s VW, to meet some city girls camping with their families. The moon is shining on the water as we swing into to campground with joyous anticipation. Just then, “Time of the Season” comes on the radio. We are spellbound. It was a breathless moment in time.
I’m yer daddy
Love to see The Zombies one more time.
I’ve been a zombies fan since I was 8 years old, when “She’s not There” was a hit. Love this band!
Now I have Care of Cell 44 stuck in my head—a great thing, actually. Pick me! I’d bring my teenager, who would love them, I think.
Classic! I’d love to see them live!!
what a great band- would love to see live!
Oh man this would be a so awesome concert to attend. I have always liked them,
I was a zombie when I saw how much these tickets cost, so I’m hoping for luck in this contest! 🤞
THIS WILL BE MY YEAR!
I’ve been wanting to see them for years and the last couple times they were here I had NO MONEY. I’ve been thinking about it since tix went on sale months ago but I’m on a very fixed budget bc disability I am reluctant to spend $70+ on a ticket but I also realize they’re not gonna be around for too much longer and once Colin is gone, it’s over.
Also, on this page it lists the wrong price for tickets. GA are not $40, they are $60
Would love to take my dad!
Want to see Olivia please.
Love the zombies Classic all time recordings. Chance to hear live!
This would be so cool to go to!!!
The Zombies x Olivia Klugman? Dreams do come true.
The Zombies x Olivia Klugman? Dreams do come true.
Is he rich like me?
Life is a merry-go-round, and I would be very merry to hop on this show!!
A pivotal band in my formative years and beyond. Ahead of their time. Listening with my eyes closed live, to the sweet melodies would be blissful in these woefully dreary times
I don’t want to be on the “She’s not there” list of this show. I want to be there!!!
I’m so endeared to the Zombies music. And they super nice guys, too.
Love to see they play.
True rock royalty. I would love to hear them play their classics live.
Would love to see The kinks again, been a long while.
Is this the original Zombies from my hippie days? Hope so.
Please! Don’t want to have to tell my wife that ‘She’s Not There’ (at the show…)
The best British Invasion band!
Would love to take my daughter to this show. Since she was little, the song, Time of the season has been our song. Now at 44 she still loves this song. She might have a mental disability, but she still loves this song and band. Matter of fact, we sing this song together, ” Who’s your daddy”? It would be great for her to see the group that has been one of her favorites for many years.
Oh my goodness amazing, let’s go!!!
