The Zombies have been forced to postpone their upcoming performance in Carlisle.

The 1960's music icons were set to perform at the city's Old Fire Station on February 16, however the performance has been rearranged for Thursday May 4 2023.

A spokesperson for the band said: "We regret to announce that The Zombies’ upcoming February/March 2022 tour of the UK will be postponed.  One of the band members requires an urgent (but non-life-threatening) medical procedure, and a full 6 weeks of recovery time before he can perform.  We truly appreciate the patience and understanding of our fans, many of whom have held on to their tickets, despite this tour already being postponed twice due to COVID.

"New dates are now announced for April/May 2023.  Tickets will remain valid for the new dates, but refunds can also be requested at the point-of-purchase.  The Zombies were truly excited to finally perform again at home in the UK, and this postponement is a huge, if unavoidable, disappointment.  We encourage you to hold on to your tickets if you can, and continue to support your local venues and live music!"
