Bauhaus issued a statement Tuesday assuring fans they are “working diligently” to reschedule the remainder of the band’s planned 2020 reunion shows, with the group looking forward “so very much to playing again as soon as it is possible to do so.”
The statement, issued through the band’s publicists and posted to social media, did not offer any kind of time frame for when rescheduled shows might take place. In fact, the statement did not specifically address any of the band’s currently scheduled performances, it simply referred to “entering a challenging phase when many listed shows will be labeled ‘postponed.'”
“Where possible,” the band told fans, original tickets will remain valid for the new dates.
The reunited band — Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, David J — played three shows in Hollywood late last year, then began announcing sporadic headlining concerts and festival appearances for 2020, that were to have begun with an April 6 performance in France.
That show was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, as were additional dates in London and Mexico City, and festival appearances — including Cruel World — began to get moved. The band’s remaining shows in the U.S. in June, July and September will presumably now all be canceled or rescheduled.
See the band’s full statement below — and the original tour dates.
Dear friends of Bauhaus,
Due to the pandemic, we are now entering a challenging phase when many listed shows will be labeled “postponed.” We are however, looking at alternative dates for these performances. This situation is unprecedented and incredibly dynamic with a continually moving target.
We, the band and our team are working diligently to establish new time frames for the concerts, please note — “where possible” original tickets will remain valid for the new dates.
We thank you for your continued patience
Please keep safe and we look forward so very much to playing again as soon as it is possible to do so. Please keep an eye on all relevant sites and outlets for further and imminent announcements.
WE LOVE OUR AUDIENCE!
