PETER MURPHY Invites DAVID J For The Bauhaus Portion of His Residency at SF's The Chapel

San Francisco, CA – Wednesday, September 20th – PETER MURPHY, (((folkYEAH!))) Presents and The Chapel are proud to announce that Bauhaus founding bassist, David John Haskins – better known as David J – will be joining Peter Murphy for three nights of Bauhaus classics during Murphy’s month-long career retrospective at The Chapel in San Francisco.

The Chapel has also added a third night of Bauhaus classics (the “Mr. Moonlight” shows) after the second night quickly sold out. All three nights of Mr. Moonlight will have a VIP upgrade option that includes a meet and greet, soundcheck experience, commemorative t-shirt and priority entrance to the shows where applicable.

“It’s with great feeling of gladness to announce that for the three Mr Moonlight Bauhaus shows on February 14th, 15th and 16th that David J has accepted my invitation to join me in performing and play his, what must be said, excellent original bass parts,” said Murphy. “During the 35 years of Bauhaus Mr. Moonlight tour of 2013, Emilio DiZefalo-China (my bass player and violin player) noted how unique David’s bass parts are – now we have David in person to play. It is obviously going to be a great pleasure personally to have David to my right in these shows. See you there, ‘let them know you’re coming!’”

“I’m very pleased to have received Peter's gracious invitation to take part in these upcoming festivities,” said David J. “Looking forward to rekindling the flickering flame.”

This news comes on the heels of this month long residency being postponed to late January and early February due to a serious issue to Murphy’s vocal cords. Murphy also released a new video for his fans surrounding his recovery, stating that “the nodules they removed have been transferred to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be framed.”

The Chapel is so happy that Peter is back and stronger than ever, and cannot wait to host this extra special, one-of-a-kind residency with him,” said Fred Barnes, General Manager of The Chapel. “Now with the announcement of David’s involvement for three shows of legendary Bauhaus material, we simply could not be more thrilled than to add this very special extra element to an already unique and incredible career spanning residency of one of England’s greatest and most singular musical exports, Peter Murphy.”
