The Zombies, The Yardbirds and The Spencer Davis Group
Announce Summer 2009 North American Tour

The Zombies
Some of the finest artists from the British Invasion return to the States for the "Rock Royalty Tour 2009." Topping the bill are The Zombies, featuring original members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent. The Zombies are celebrating the release of the Odessey & Oracle 40th Anniversary Concert. A DVD of the concert is also available as an import, and there are plans to release it in the States sometime in 2009. The group will be playing their hits "She’s Not There," "Time of the Season," "Tell Her No" and songs from keyboardist/songwriter Rod Argent's '70s hits like "Hold Your Head Up" as well as selections from Odessey & Oracle.

Joining The Zombies are the Spencer Davis Group, known for their '60s Brit-soul hits "I'm a Man," "Gimme Some Lovin'" and others, and pioneering rockers The Yardbirds. Legendary as a proving ground for guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, The Yardbirds are known for such hits as "For Your Love," "Over, Under, Sideways, Down" and "Heart Full of Soul." This incarnation of the band features original members Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja.
