Government shutdown blamed for delay in start of Peter Murphy’s San Francisco residency

The three-day U.S. government shutdown is apparently holding up Peter Murphy’s 16-night San Francisco residency, as a delay in processing his visa has forced the rescheduling of the first two shows, during which he is to perform his debut solo album Should the World Fail to Fall Apart.

The San Francisco venue, The Chapel, says it is 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 residency, adjusted to 15 nights, now opens Jan. 26 with a performance of Love Hysteria.

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.

See full dates below.

 

Dear Peter Murphy “Should the World Fail to Fall Apart” ticket holders,

Due to an unforeseen governmental delay in the processing of Peter’s visa application including the shutdown of the Federal government, we are preemptively rescheduling the performances of “Should the World Fail to Fall Apart” (scheduled for Tuesday, 1/23 and Wednesday 1/24) to Thursday, 2/1.

All tickets purchased for the 1/23 and 1/24 show will transfer to this new date – so there is no action on your part, you can simply check in with your original ticket on 2/1.

We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Full refunds will be issued if you are unable to make the new date, and if you prefer to attend a show prior to the new 2/1 “Should the World Fail to Fall Apart” date we will happily accommodate your request where capacity allows. To make up for the rescheduling, Peter will be adding a special something to the 2/1 makeup show.

Thank you for your understanding, and for being a part of this historic run of shows with Peter Murphy. We look forward to seeing you at The Chapel soon

Sincerely The Chapel
