Peter Murphy, the iconic frontman of legendary goth outfit Bauhaus is back in Australia for the first time since 2013, hitting Capitol on Sunday, October 28. He will be joined by fellow Bauhaus founding bassist David J delivering a set comprising classic Bauhaus debut album In The Flat Field with brilliant works from the band’s canon including Bela Lugosi’s Dead, She’s In Parties, Kick In The Eye, Terror Couple Kill Colonel, Hair Of The Dog and more.
Thanks to David Roy Williams Entertainment we have a double pass to give away.
Bauhaus exploded out of the London post-punk scene in 1978 with a dark romantic image and brooding songs that quickly became the touchstone for the nascent goth movement. Bauhaus, with Peter Murphy at the helm and David J’s soul wrenching bass, helped take goth mainstream, culminating in an appearance in David Bowie’s 1983 film The Hunger, noted by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll film movie moments of all time. Murphy has since set forth on his internationally acclaimed solo career, and his pioneering and long-lasting influence was reinforced when Trent Reznor brought him in as a collaborator and Nine Inch Nails guest in the late 00’s, and when he made a cameo appearance as “The Cold One” in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in 2010.
