With their former bandmates off performing together as Poptone, the other half of Bauhaus — Peter Murphy and David J — reunited on stage today at a festival in Mexico to perform a set of Bauhaus classics ahead of their rescheduled run of shows in San Francisco this summer.
Bassist David J joined Murphy for a 12-song set in uncharacteristic broad daylight at the Roxy Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, performing Bauhaus favorites such as “Silent Hedges,” “In the Flat Field,” “Stigmata Martyr,” “Dark Entries” and “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” plus a set-closing cover of “Ziggy Stardust.”
The duo — together again some 10 years after the Bauhaus reunion ended in acrimony — will reprise their set at three shows in June in San Francisco, part of Murphy’s twice-delayed 15-night residency in that city that will find him revisiting much of his solo catalog.
Below, check out the setlist from today’s show, and see fan-shot video.
We’ll add more as it surfaces.
