PETER MURPHY Celebrates 40th Anniversary of BAUHAUS with RUBY Tour… Performing IN THE FLAT FIELD in its Entirety

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of iconic and highly revered post-punk band BAUHAUSPETER MURPHY has announced the RUBY TOUR which will circle the continent beginning and ending in Southern California. Along with fellow Bauhaus bandmate DAVID J on bass, they will be performing their debut album IN THE FLAT FIELD in its entirety along with an extended encore of Bauhaus classics.

“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,” Peter says. “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?”

Adds David J on his recent tours with Peter, “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!”

Kicking off on Jan. 16th at Anaheim’s City National Grove, the tour will hit Seattle (Jan. 20th @ The Neptune), Austin (Jan. 31st at Paramount Theater), New York (Feb. 14th at Terminal 5) and Chicago (Feb. 22nd @ Rockefeller Chapel) before concluding in Los Angeles’s (Feb. 28th at The Novo DTLA). Full dates are below.

First emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking rock band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra-seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She’s In Parties”, “Silent Hedges”, and, of course, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career that has yielded ten solo albums so far, including his latest LION, released in 2014.
