David J Haskins and Peter Murphy are reuniting to perform Bauhaus songs together for the first time in over a decade

Half of Bauhaus are to reunite!

David J Haskins is joining Peter Murphy on bass for the final three Mr. Moonlight shows  during the ex-Bauhaus vocalist’s expanded 16-night residency in San Francisco, which was rescheduled from June and July of this year to February of 2018.

Peter Murphy made the announcement this morning via Facebook stating that it was with a ‘great feeling of gladness’ that the former Bauhaus bassist will join him for the Bauhaus themed shows during the residency’s final nights on February 14th, 15th, and 16th.

Here is the full announcement:

“It’s with great feeling of gladness to announce that David J has accepted my invitation to join me in performing and play his, what must be said, excellent original bass parts for three Mr Moonlight Bauhaus shows at The Chapel SF on February 14, 15, and just added show on February 16. During the 35 Years of Bauhaus Mr Moonlight tour of 2013, Emilio Dizefalo (my bass and violin player) noted how unique David’s bass part are and as such now we have David in person to play. It is obviously and additionally going to be a great pleasure personally to have David to my right in these shows. See you there.” 

Meanwhile the other two Bauhaus alumni are currently touring in support of their project Poptone, which also carries a few Bauhaus tunes in its repertoire, among songs by Love and Rockets, and Tones on Tail.
