Original Bauhaus lineup to reunite for first time in 13 years [Updated]

on September 19, 2019, 1:04pm

Bauhaus is undead, undead, undead once more. For the first time in 13 years, all four original members will reunite for a one-night-only concert at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on November 3rd. Update: A second date has been announced at Hollywood Palladium for November 4th. Update: And now a third date has been added for December 1st. Tickets to the reunion shows are available here.

The shows will see Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, and David J getting back together after going their separate ways in 2008. Their last performances as Bauhaus were during their 2006 run opening for Nine Inch Nails. That trek followed their 2005 Coachella appearance and their 20th anniversary tour in 1998, which came 15 years after their initial split in 1983.

Of course, the various members have sporadically performed together in different iterations over the years. Last November, Murphy and David J teamed up for the “Ruby Tour” celebrating 40 years of Bauhaus. The later also played with Haskins and Ash as Love and Rockets for some time, while those two formed POPTONE back in 2017.

News of the reunion comes just under a month removed from Murphy’s scary medical emergency. The frontman suffered a heart attack in the midst of his residency at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge. Thankfully, he’s made a full recovery and appears ready to rejoin his old bandmates in LA this fall.

Tickets to the reunion shows are available here.
