the_zombies_2014Ashvegas is partnering with The Orange Peel music venue for a series of ticket-give-aways. It’s the Peel’s way of thanking its fans who have supported the venue through the years and last year made The Orange Peel the top ticket-selling venue in the Southeast according to Pollstar.

Here’s the press release:

Brit-rockers The Zombies invade Asheville Tuesday, April 15th at the Orange Peel downtown.
Here’s your chance to win tickets, courtesy of Ashvegas and the Orange Peel! Leave a comment on this blog post to be entered to win.
The Zombies formed in 1961 and soon after became one of the biggest bands of the British Rock Invasion that hit the States in the 60s. The band’s first big hit, “She’s Not There” was released it in 1964, and was followed by other smashes like “Tell Her No,” “I Love You,” and their biggest hit, “Time of The Season”.
More than 50 years later, the band is back with original lead vocalist and songwriter Colin Bluntstone and original keyboardist, vocalist, and main songwriter Rod Argent heading up the tour. 
Fans of garage rock and rock n’ roll in general are in for a treat!. Tickets can be purchased at the Orange Peel’s website:

    Where Do Zombies Come From?
    There is a great deal of confusion about how one becomes a zombie. The only way to become a zombie is by being bitten by a zombie. Every year, however, thousands of Americans are misdiagnosed as zombies. The Center for Disease Control attributes the majority of these cases to overexposure to infomercials. The Center also states that false-positive zombie reports tend to increase every four years in conjunction with presidential debates.

  14. They are amazing in concert. If it were something like CCR without Fogerty, I’d be concerned, but Rod & Colin are the living Zombies

  15. Would love to bring my sister to the orange peel tomorrow when she gets in town to see the zombies!
