British rock legends The Zombies graced the stage of LA's historic Theatre at The Ace Hotel on Saturday night, April 29 for a celebration of the band's storied career that included a performance of their seminal second album "Odessey and Oracle."

Performing in two sets, with the first featuring the current lineup performing hits and favorites and the second featuring members of the original line up, The Zombies' show on Saturday night was a showcase of the band's evergreen appeal, vitality and contributions to pop music that have helped shape the cultural landscape of the past 50 years. Culminating with a remarkable performance of the album's final track, "Time of the Season," The Zombies garnered a much deserved standing ovation from the LA crowd in a showing of admiration that was as much for the night's performance itself as it was for the band's significance and importance over the years to each and every person gathered here.
