Peter Murphy cancels 1st night of San Francisco residency, blames shutdown for visa delay

After rescheduling the first show and canceling a second, Peter Murphy has now canceled what should have been tonight’s opening concert in a month-long residency in San Francisco, citing “unforeseen delays in Peter’s visa application due to the government shutdown.”

The run, should Murphy be able to get into the U.S., would now start on Saturday.

 

 

On Monday, San Francisco’s The Chapel said it was preemptively rescheduling the Jan. 23 and 24 opening of the residency, and combining them as a single show on Feb. 1, due to “unforeseen governmental delay in the processing of Peter’s visa application including the shutdown of the federal government.”

Tickets for both the Jan. 23 and 24 shows will be honored Feb. 1, and refunds are available for those who can’t make the new date; see full details below.

The concerts, originally announced to take place last June and July, will find Murphy performing “a retrospective of his greatest solo albums in their entirety,” as well as several nights devoted to Bauhaus material. The shows, however, were postponed to early 2018 after nodules were discovered on Murphy’s vocal cords that were going to necessitate treatment and an extended period of recovery.

As an added bonus, Murphy has enlisted former bandmate David J to play bass in his band during the final three, Bauhaus-focused nights of the residency.
