Win Tickets ($270): The Zombies @ Aladdin Theater | 50+ Years of Music, English Rock (August 29)
The Zombies are now in their 51st year and are cited as being one of the most influential UK pop/rock bands of all time. Aside from the Beatles and perhaps the Beach Boys, no mid-’60s rock group wrote melodies as gorgeous as those of the Zombies. Dominated by Colin Blunstone’s breathy vocals, choral backup harmonies, and Rod Argent’s shining jazz- and classical-influenced organ and piano, the band sounded utterly unique for their era. To this day, they’re known primarily for their three big hit singles, “She’s Not There”, “Tell Her No”, and “Time of the Season”, however they have released multiple albums in recent years, both in the studio and live.
