Peter Murphy and David J to celebrate 40 Years of Bauhaus with a European Festival Date

Following the unfortunate delay in his 15 night residency in San Francisco due to delays in processing his US Visa, there is some good news for Peter Murphy and Bauhaus fans in Europe.

It has been announced that Bauhaus bassist David J Haskins will be joining Peter Murphy in celebrating 40 years of Bauhaus—not only during the residency dates that have been rescheduled for late June, but for at least one European date as well at the W-Festival in Belgium.

Peter Murphy and David J are set to perform on August 15th, the first night of the 4 day festival, which also features performances from acts like Chameleons Vox, Modern English, DAF, Altered Images, Heaven 17, Nouvelle Vague, Marc Almond, Shriekback, Clan of Xymox, Trisomie 21, and more.

No dates in addition to the W-Festival performance have been announced as of yet, but it is likely that more will be added in the coming weeks.

2013 marked the last Bauhaus milestone with the Mr. Moonlight Tour: 35 years of Bauhaus, where Peter Murphy toured with his own backing band, which did not include the Haskins brothers or guitarist Daniel Ash.

It has become more unlikely that this year we will see a full reunion of all four member of Bauhaus on one stage in celebration the band’s 40th anniversary, given Daniel Ash and former Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins’ commitment to their new Tones On Tail related project Poptone, for which they are set to release a Part Time Punks session later this year.

Kevin Haskins himself is marking his former band’s 40th anniversary with the release on March 16th of his book Bauhaus – Undead “The Visual History and Legacy of Bauhaus.

Additionally, David J has released a new edition of his memoir Who Killed Mister Moonlight? Bauhaus, Black Magic, and Benediction.
