The Zombies | Life Is A Merry-Go-Round

This event has already taken place


The revival of the iconic British rock group The Zombies at the beginning of this century was a blessing for the pop world. With their roots in the memorable sixties, they jumped into the 21st century with ease.

And even now they are far from done with their fans; and vice versa! Their loyal fanbase spans generations. Today's young music lovers are just as moved by vocal gems like She's Not There and Time of the Season as their peers in the early years of the band. With recent successes like Still Got That Hunger, the band continues its triumphant tour with the same passion as in its early years.

Founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, who decided in 1967 to pull the plug on the band in favor of their solo careers, are responsible for this jubilant return. Blunstone had hits such as Say You Don't Mind, What Becomes of the Brokenhearted, and made the song Old and Wise with The Alan Parsons Project. Rod Argent founded his own band ARGENT, which caused a furore with songs like Hold Your Head Up and God Gave Rock and Roll to You. However, at the turn of the century, Blunstone and Argent decided to give The Zombies a second life. New blood was added to the band with drummer Steve Rodford, guitarist Tom Toomey and bassist Sören Koch. Koch succeeded bassist Jim Rodford, who died far too young in 2018.
A long-awaited triumph for The Zombies was their entry into the world-renowned Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in March 2019. A well-deserved honor for a 'primal band' whose psychedelic songs have had such a major influence on pop music. The Hall of Fame ceremony took place on the fiftieth anniversary of the band's first No. 1 listing on the US charts with the song Time of the Season. At that time, no other English band aside from The Beatles had succeeded to do so and that says it all.
