Peter Murphy @ Webster Hall, 5/7/2013
Peter Murphy

Last night (5/7), Peter Murphy returned to New York, playing a nearly two-hour set of his Bauhaus material to a sold out Webster Hall. It was part of his Mr Moonlight tour, Celebrating 35 Years of Bauhaus, which takes him throughout the US, Mexico, Canada and Europe. (He was in Austin a couple weeks ago.) However as girls sat on each other's shoulders taking photos of each other with Bauhaus signs, Murphy was quick to remind everyone that "We're not Bauhaus, we're us!" Otherwise his set was notably free of the usual between-song banter, which I wondered about until he dedicated an emotional "Who Killed Mr Moonlight" to his mother-in-law saying she'd passed away eight hours earlier.

The two support bands were Loudboy from NYC, apparently a nickname given to frontman John Andrews by Helmet's Page Hamilton, followed by Ours, a six piece who have supported Peter Murphy in the past and describe themselves as "an American based musical group led by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Gnecco." Ours are also in the midst of an extensive headlining tour throughout the US.

More pictures from Webster Hall are below.

"We're not Bauhaus, and that's why I skipped this show." No regrets.

No David J, Daniel Ash or Kevin Haskins...no Bauhaus.

I don't get it.. he didn't play "Losing My Edge" or that Daft Punk song?

Exactly 90 min show, not even close to two hours.

I thought the show was great. Peter's voice is still strong and he put on a good show. I'd seen Bauhaus back in 1999(?) in Philly and it was awesome. This band was good, but maybe it lacked a bit of the original "spirit" that Daniel, David and Kevin Bauhaus brought to the stage. And the song Peter dedicated to his mother-in-law was "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything".

The Delancey show was far better than this.

Posted by Anonymous | May 8, 2013 4:39 PM

The Delancey was supertastic but it WAS a great show even if we felt like slimey slugs in the audience. Also note, put your phone down you idiot, first of all you are holding it wrong...hate to see you in bed! Good grief! This needs more fun comments..

1:14 - Props to seeing Bauhaus in the early 80s but, judging from your post, you are either drunk, an idiot or both.

Did anyone tell him that he's DJing a Jersey Shore wannabe cheesy club in Queens tonight? Hit the link for the club above and get ready to laugh your ass off. He's in Parties indeed.

Severance is a great tune. Would have loved to see it

Went and saw him in concert and by concert I mean he was playing live at some shitty Detroit area venue. Waited through his whole set to hear this damn song and he didn't even do it.
