Murphy to perform only Bauhaus material on mammoth U.S. and European run of dates

Peter Murphy has announced that he'll be setting out to perform Bauhaus material exclusively on a 49-date U.S. and European tour, which he's named after the track 'Who Killed Mr. Moonlight?' from their fourth album Burning From The Inside.

Says Murphy: “Since 2006, I have included my Bauhaus work into my solo work as a way of tipping my hat to my own audience… Those who discovered my early work as well as new and old fans of those years strong wishes to hear the music of my band crackle and spark in the live arena. Being the foremost advocate of this Bauhaus work, I decided the time was ripe to at last give a pure Bauhaus experience in one Mr. Moonlight world tour. Mr. Moonlight is alive and well, don't doubt it.”

Here are the dates for the UK leg of the Mr. Moonlight Tour; get hold of tickets via Murphy's Facebook:

JUNE
Fri 14 - Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
Sat 15 - Oran Mor, Glasgow
Mon 17 - Academy 2, Birmingham
Tue 18 - Academy, Bristol
Wed 19 - Islington Academy, London
