British rock group The Zombies have announced their final set of tour dates for their 'Odessey and Oracle' tour
The Zombies have announced the final set of dates for their 'Odessey and Oracle Tour'.
The rock band - comprised of Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Chris White, and Hugh Grundy - have been touring and performing their 1968 album 'Odessey and Oracle' in its entirety, and have now announced the last dates for their run of shows.
The album was the second of the band's six studio records, and was released after the group split in 1967, before reforming again in 1991.
While the record sold poorly during its original release, one of its tracks 'Time of the Season' was released as a single and in 1969 became a hit, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100.
The last leg of the tour, which sees them play the album from start to finish, will run from March to April next year, and comprises a further 26 dates solely in the US and Canada.
Alongside the tour, The Zombies are releasing an album-sized coffee table book in March 2017.
It will feature stories about their time making 'Odessey and Oracle', as well as handwritten lyrics and artwork by Terry Quirk - who designed the cover art for the album, as well as for their most recent work 'Still Got That Hunger'.
