The Zombies “Still Got That Hunger” with New Release and Canadian Dates Announced
Fri Feb 14, 2020

Iconic British pop pioneers The Zombies announced a North American tour which includes three Southern U.S. dates in Baton Rouge, Birmingham and Biloxi, before heading North for eight shows in Canada.  These dates will follow the group's performances at sea aboard two popular music cruises - The Flower Power's 5th Anniversary Cruise and the On The Blue Cruise - both sailing the Caribbean Sea out of Miami.

The Zombies will perform selections from their 50+ year career, which began with the 1964 smash “She’s Not There”, and show no signs of slowing down.  In fact, the band will be debuting new material on this tour, as founding keyboardist Rod Argent shares: "We’re so excited because we’ve started to record tracks now for our next album, and we’ll definitely be including two or three of those new tracks in our live show!"
