Legendary Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy will play a concert at MTelus in Montreal this Saturday, February 16th, celebrating 40 years of the influential English post-punk band.


Bauhaus consisted of Murphy (vocals, occasional instruments), Daniel Ash (guitar, saxophone), Kevin Haskins (drums) and David J (bass). The band was originally named Bauhaus 1919 in reference to the first operating year of the German art school Bauhaus, although they shortened the name within a year of formation. One of the first gothic rock groups, Bauhaus were known for their dark image and gloomy sound, although they mixed many genres, including dubglam rockpsychedelia and funk.

Bauhaus broke up in 1983, when Peter Murphy began a solo career while Ash and Haskins continued as Tones on Tail and, later, reunited with David J to form Love and Rockets. Both enjoyed greater commercial success in the United States than Bauhaus had, but disappeared from the charts in their homeland. Bauhaus eventually reunited for a 1998 tour and again from 2005 to 2008.

Tickets are available priced $40.00 + CA $8.75 fees, including taxes via Evenko
