Peter Murphy will resurface this spring for the first time since Bauhaus’s reunion tour imploded last summer when he joins the “Celebrating David Bowie” tour alongside guitarist Adrian Belew and members of Spacehog and A Perfect Circle to perform the Thin White Duke’s music.

The tour will find the assembled musicians spotlighting David Bowie’s greatest hits with a heavy focus on Ziggy Stardust, the Berlin trilogy — Low, “Heroes” and Lodger — and “his later Trent Reznor-infused years.”

Murphy and Belew — who has played with both Bowie and Nine Inch Nails — will be joined by guitarist Scrote, Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon, A Perfect Circle members Matt McJunkins (bass) and Jeff Friedl (drums), saxophonist Ron Dziubla and guitarist Eric Schermerhorn, who played with Bowie’s Tin Machine.

“Such a surprise to be invited to celebrate Bowie in this outing, and alongside a great line up,” Murphy said in a statement released by the tour’s organizers. “So enticing to play the part.”

The tour — sandwiched between Belew’s dates playing Talking Heads songs with Jerry Harrison — will open April 5 in Houston, Texas, and run through May 8 in Tacoma, Washington. Tickets for nearly all of the shows go on sale at noon local time Friday, Feb. 24. See for more information.

Murphy had been touring with the reunited Bauhaus last year, a trek interrupted by the pandemic that ultimately unraveled when the frontman entered rehab in late August. The other members of Bauhaus have since agreed to reform as Love and Rockets and will play the Cruel World festival in May.
