The Zombies will give North American fans one last opportunity to hear the group's 1968 masterpiece Odessey & Oracle live and in its entirety during a 26-date spring tour.

Following the Zombies' October 2015 trek celebrating Odessey & Oracle, the group's surviving members – singer Colin Blunstone, keyboardist Rod Argent, bassist Chris White and drummer Hugh Grundy – will kick off their next stretch of dates March 17th in Glenside, Pennsylvania. The tour wraps April 29th in Los Angeles at a to-be-announced venue.

As the Zombies wrote on Facebook, 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the band recording Odessey & Oracle; the album wasn't released until April 1968, four months after the band had broken up. As a result, the band's original members never performed the album's tracks live together until their 2015 reunion tour.

Tickets for the final North American Odessey & Oracle shows go on sale October 21st.

In addition to the tour, the Zombies will release an album-sized coffee table book in March 2017 about the making of Odessey & Oracle, featuring handwritten lyrics and artwork from artist Terry Quirk, who painted the album cover (and infamously misspelled the album title).
