On a beautiful late summer evening, Thursday, September 12th, Nederlander concerts brought a historic classic rock double bill to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. The term classic rock is often used loosely to label old rock bands but perfectly describes a night of music from Brian Wilson and his phenomenal band and The Zombies.
It’s been covered by the Dave Matthews Band, The Guess Who and sampled by Eminem. But that’s merely the short list. Originally released as a single, “Time of the Season” has enjoyed a lengthy and unprecedented run, yet, ironically, the smooth, sexy ballad was originally passed over.
The Zombies have begun what they are calling their last tour performing the full “Odessey and Oracle” album on the 50th anniversary of their recording at EMI Records’ Abbey Road Studios in London.
The 1967-released “Odessey and Oracle” by British Invasion super stars, The Zombies, was originally performed and recorded by: Colin Blunstone, lead vocalist, Rod Argent, pianist, harpsichordist, Mellotron, vocals, Paul Atkinson, guitarist, Chris White, bassist and Hugh Grundy, drummer, at London’s Abbey Road and Olympic Studios.
Join us early for a talk with Colin and Rod of The Zombies moderated by director Jonathan Demme and stick around for a full length show with The Zombies, Django Django and Adam Green and Binki Shapiro.
