Peter Murphy visited Baltimore Soundstage recently to celebrate his former gothic rock band Bauhaus with The Ruby Tour: 40 Years of Bauhaus. And he brought along his old Bauhaus bandmate David J. on bass in a rare reunion of Bauhaus players. Paivi Salonen captured the action!
With The Ruby Tour: 40 Years of Bauhaus, Peter and David J. Haskins injected new life into their storied former band with a full-album performances of their groundbreaking debut album, In a Flat Field (1980), augmented with choice selections from both Bauhaus and Peter’s solo output, which Houston Chronicle characterized as “the haunting soundtrack to the dissolution.”

Peter Murphy and David J remain on the road through Feb. 28 in Los Angeles. Then, Peter encamps in San Francisco for a residency at The Chapel in San Francisco for much of March, which will see him close out the tour with two special nights dedicated entirely to David Bowie.
