Peter Murphy summons his powers (and Bauhaus) @ The Belmont - 4/23/2013
Bauhaus turns 35 this year, and Peter Murphy celebrated on Tuesday (4/23) by performing only Bauhaus (and songs they covered) at The Belmont as part of his MR. MOONLIGHT TOUR. On the idea of having all of the original members with him Peter stated, "This is not a replacement band; this is a better band." Zing!
Austin locals (by way of NOLA) My Jerusalem kicked off the night with a warm set. That was welcome, since it got cold quickly.
Peter and co. performed their 16 song set, which included covers of "Ziggy Stardust" and "Telegram Sam" a la Bauhaus, and multiple encores. See more pictures of Peter Murphy and My Jerusalem, plus Murphy's setlist, below...
