“The nodules they removed have been transferred to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be framed” – Peter Murphy
Along with releasing a new video for his fans, Murphy announces a third “Mr. Moonlight” show added to his month-long residency – all three shows to be joined by founding Bauhaus member, David J. 

San Francisco, CA – Wednesday, September 20th – PETER MURPHY(((folkYEAH!))) Presents and The Chapel are proud to announce that Bauhaus founding bassist, David John Haskins – better known as David J – will be joining Peter Murphy for three nights of Bauhaus classics during Murphy’s month-long career retrospective at The Chapel in San Francisco.

The Chapel has also added a third night of Bauhaus classics (the “Mr. Moonlight” shows) after the second night quickly sold out. All three nights of Mr. Moonlight will have a VIP upgrade option that includes a meet and greet, soundcheck experience, commemorative t-shirt and priority entrance to the shows where applicable.

Tickets for this third night of Mr. Moonlight go on sale tomorrow (Thursday, September 21st) at high noon PST, here: http://www.thechapelsf.com/event/1566603

“It’s with great feeling of gladness to announce that for the three Mr Moonlight Bauhaus shows on February 14th, 15th and 16th that David J has accepted my invitation to join me in performing and play his, what must be said, excellent original bass parts,” said Murphy. “During the 35 years of Bauhaus Mr. Moonlight tour of 2013, Emilio DiZefalo-China (my bass player and violin player) noted how unique David’s bass parts are – now we have David in person to play. It is obviously going to be a great pleasure personally to have David to my right in these shows. See you there, ‘let them know you’re coming!’”

“I’m very pleased to have received Peter’s gracious invitation to take part in these upcoming festivities,” said David J. “Looking forward to rekindling the flickering flame.”

This news comes on the heels of this month long residency being postponed to late January and early February due to a serious issue to Murphy’s vocal cords. Murphy also released a new video for his fans surrounding his recovery, stating that “the nodules they removed have been transferred to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be framed.” You can view the entire video, here: https://youtu.be/PlvL1PsOJgk

About Peter Murphy
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 rock band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra-seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She’s In Parties”, “Silent Hedges”, and, of course, “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. Murphy also released the live album Bare-Boned and Sacred on March 2017 through Metropolis Records, which was recorded in New York City on his Strippped tour.
