Peter Murphy of Bauhaus

Ex-Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy will embark on an extensive tour the U.S. in March and April, hitting, at a minimum, cities on the East and West coasts, plus major cities in between, judging from dates assembled from venue and ticketing websites — and thanks to a heads-up from a sharp-eyed reader.

UPDATE 2/14/11: New album and full tour announced. See details here.

There’s been no official announcement yet from Murphy, but, so far, at least 25 dates have emerged, beginning March 8 in Portland, Ore., with stops in California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia planned before an April 10 show in Chicago — although based on gaps in that schedule, additional concerts are possible (see dates below).

The trek will be Murphy’s first U.S. tour since an extensive run of dates in the summer of 2009. Since then, he’s completed an as-yet-unreleased solo album called Ninth, recorded a second Dalis Car record with Mick Karn before the bassist’s death earlier this year, and had a public falling out with Dead Can Dance’s Brendan Perry, scotching a planned 100-date joint world tour by the duo.
