Peter Murphy suffered a heart attack on August 13, which was two-thirds of the way through his 12-show residency at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge. The 62-year-old artist says he’s on doing well and on the mend, as does the hospital. “Mr. Peter Murphy was admitted to the Lenox Hill Hospital Cardiac Care Unit on August 13, 2019 after having suffered a heart attack,” Dr. Akshai Bhandary, Director of the Cardiac Care Unit at Lenox Hill Hospital, said in a statement. “He underwent emergent angioplasty and received two stents to his right coronary artery. Since then, Mr. Murphy has done excellent and is expected to make a full recovery.”

Murphy released his own statement, “Following my recent episode in New York City with my heart attack and being admitted into Lenox Hill Hospital and seeing myself go through the rigors of intensive care, I am very happy to say that I have made a full recovery. Thanks to the superb team of doctors, specialists, nurses and care staff. I am so glad to say I am up and running again.”

He also says, “My tour manager Brian Lowe and my assistant Chantal Thomas were directly instrumental in saving my life and to whom I cannot thank enough. I also want to thank every single friend and fan who has been supporting me throughout this ordeal. I remain grateful especially to my Bauhaus band mates.”
