Following his recovery and return to health after his heart attack last month that forced him to cut short his historic residency in NYC, PETER MURPHY has announced the new dates for his rescheduled shows (previously purchased tickets will be honored). Taking place at New York City’s (LE) POISSON ROUGE (158 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012), his four rescheduled shows each display a different musical concept – his solo greatest hits on night one, “Mr. Moonlight” which showcases the hits of Bauhaus next, and then two tributes to David Bowie.
The new dates are as follows:
New York City Residency
Jan 20: Greatest Hits + Signature cuts from Lion
Jan 21: Bauhaus’ Mr Moonlight
Jan. 23: Tribute to David Bowie
Jan. 24: Tribute to David Bowie
The live lineup includes Mark Gemini Thwaite (Guitar), Marc Slutsky (Drums), and Emilio Zef China (Bass/Violin). Tickets for these shows are currently on sale and can be purchased at http://petermurphy.lpr.com.
After an extensive and exhaustive 93 shows worldwide of “The Ruby Tour: 40 Years of Bauhaus” (featuring David J) that concluded this Spring, as well as a similar residency in San Francisco, Murphy took the stage in NYC in August and performed a majority of his scheduled shows before having to postpone the rest to recuperate from his heart attack.
First emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking iconic post-punk band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra-seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She’s In Parties”, “Silent Hedges”, and, of course goth anthem, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career that has yielded ten solo albums so far, including his latest LION, released in 2014.
