Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame members The Zombies are on their way to East Anglia as part of their much-anticipated UK tour.
Formed in 1961 and only the second UK band – after The Beatles – to have a No 1 hit in the United States (She’s Not There), The Zombies have had a couple of sabbaticals during their incredible 60-plus years but singer and keyboardist Rod Argent has been in their line-up for virtually the whole time they’ve been active.
As part of their Life Is A Merry-Go-Round tour, they’ll be playing The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday, April 15; Epic Studios, Norwich, on Tuesday, April 18; and the Spa Pavilion, Felixstowe, on Wednesday, April 19.
The tour was originally announced in 2021 but has been postponed a couple of times.
The east of England dates come hot on the heels of last month’s release of their latest album.
Work had got under way on Different Game following their 2019 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame but things were put on hold during the lockdowns because, as Argent explained, “the band was not content to record remotely”.
