Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy postpones David Bowie tribute tour following “unexpected medical procedure”

Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy has announced the postponement of his upcoming David Bowie tribute tour with guitarist Adrian Belew.

Murphy’s team took to social media to announce that the ‘Celebrating David Bowie’ shows – originally announced for April – are being pushed back to October and November after the singer had to undergo an “unexpected medical procedure”. While details surrounding the procedure remain unknown, his team said that it “prohibits his ability to travel as planned”.

Peter Murphy is reportedly “recovering well, will fully recover, and be ready to tour the US with the group this Fall.”
