Peter Murphy and David J reunite for 40th anniversary Bauhaus North American tour

on October 31, 2018, 4:57pm

In honor of the 40th anniversary of gothic rock pioneers Bauhaus, members Peter Murphy and David J have reunited for a special tour. “The Ruby Celebration” sees the pair playing the band’s debut album, In the Flat Field, in its entirety before segueing into an encore filled with classics from the Bauhaus catalog. An initial run of Fall 2018 dates in the UK and Europe was announced over the summer. Now, “The Ruby Celebration” tour is expected to land in North America in the new year.

Murphy and J are journeying across the pond in early 2019, with dates scheduled throughout January and February. The outing officially launches January 16th in Anaheim, with shows set for Portland, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, and Orlando. Additional concerts will be held in Philadelphia, New York, Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago. You can grab tickets here.

“There is something in you… a fire that doesn’t burn, but invokes light… where four individuals become one action and yet retain each of their own singular uniqueness,” Murphy remarked in a press statement. “The David J lookalike that I’ve cheekily placed in the band is not only fooling you but has, by a miracle, become the real thing! It’s David J himself! Look at thaaattt! David J ‘is’ the real thing! Now isn’t that just right, if not, lovely?”

J chimed in, adding, “This series of shows have been some of the most electrifying of my career! The band is super tight and playing with lashings of panache and as for M. Murphy, well, he is simply so damn ON! Ruby rising and then some!

In related news, on November 23rd, Leaving Records and Stones Throw Records will release The Bela Session, a fresh remaster of Bauhaus’ 1979 sessions that eventually birthed their classic track “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”.
