Peter Murphy will be hosting a retrospective this summer at San Francisco’s The Chapel where he’ll be performing nearly his entire solo discography over the course of 15 nights—with the omission of his last LP, 2014’s Lion.
During this residency the Northampton born Goth legend has scheduled 2 nights each for his most popular records such as Love Hysteria and Deep, as well as “a handful of Bauhaus classics”. The final two dates are being billed as “very special shows”, that could very well be reserved for an entire set of Bauhaus material or something else entirely.
“I have always wanted to do a residency and while i was performing at The Chapel on the Stripped tour last year. I felt like this was the perfect venue and that the time to do this was now,” said Peter Murphy. “There are a lot of songs on these albums that I haven’t sung in years. This is a rare chance for fans to see them performed live.”
“The Chapel is extremely proud to be hosting this unique, career-defining retrospective from one of the greatest musicians in history, Peter Murphy,” said Fred Barnes, Chapel GM. “‘Living legend’ is a title that is thrown around all too often these days, but Peter is an artist so powerful and unique that an entire culture has emerged in his wake, it takes a very rare talent to achieve such longevity and impact as Peter Murphy has. When Peter played at The Chapel last December, he said he had finally found the place he believed he could finally host this residency, which had been an idea for him for some time and we could not be more thrilled to be able to host this historic event.”
