Peter Murphy Announces The “Mr. Moonlight Tour” Celebrating 35 Years Of Bauhaus

Bauhaus was absolutely one of my favorite bands in my formative years.  The English goth-rock band formed back in 1978 with members Daniel Ash (guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums), David J (bass guitar) and Peter Murphy on lead vocals.

Murphy is often called  “The Godfather of Goth” and I still, to this day, own all of Bauhaus’ LPs.  (That’s vinyl kids, beautiful, round, black plastic) After Bauhaus broke up, the band members all went on to successful careers outside of Bauhaus.  The first 3 members formed Tones on Tail which later became Love and Rockets and Peter Murphy embarked on a highly successful solo sojourn adding 8 albums to his already impressive portfolio.

(European dates are still being worked out.)
