Peter Murphy Celebrates 35 Years of Bauhaus with "Mr. Moonlight Tour"
Published Mar 07, 2013UK goth pioneer Peter Murphy has announced his next concert tour will bypass decades of solo material to rep the back catalogue of his old group Bauhaus. The "Mr. Moonlight Tour," named after a cut off the band's 1983's Burning from the Inside, kicks off this spring.
Celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus, the trip follows Murphy's last North American run in support of his 2011 solo set Ninth, and will opt out of showcasing any new tunes to rep the disbanded act's output full-force.
"Since 2006, I have included my Bauhaus work into my solo work as a way of tipping my hat to my own audience…those who discovered my early work as well as new and old fans of those years strong wishes to hear the music of my band crackle and spark in the live arena," he said in a statement. "Being the foremost advocate of this Bauhaus work, I decided the time was ripe to at last give a pure Bauhaus experience in one 'Mr. Moonlight' world tour. Mr. Moonlight is alive and well, don't doubt it."
The recently revealed tour schedule starts up this April in Texas, and the first leg of North American dates will make it into Canada for a May 10 performance at Toronto's Lee's Palace. After that string of North American shows and a month-long stretch in Europe, Murphy returns to our side of the pond in the summer for some more U.S. shows.
You can see the tour schedule down below.
While Bauhaus' classic period ran from the late '70s to the early '80s, the band had reformed in 1998 and called it quits a second time in 2008 with the release of their final LP, Going Away White. To be clear, though, this tour is not a Bauhaus reunion, but a solo Murphy tour.
