Last December, Peter Murphy, the founder of legendary British post-punk act Bauhaus, played a stellar, sold-out show at The Chapel. And now The Godfather of Goth is leaving his longtime home in Istanbul to come back for more.
From the tail end of June to the middle of July, Murphy will play 15 shows at The Chapel, giving shine to one of his solo albums cover-to-cover each night. He’ll also spin a handful of Bauhaus classic, like “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and “Cuts You Up,” and there will be limited edition merchandise and artwork for sale.
“I have always wanted to do a residency, and while I was performing at The Chapel on the Stripped tour last year, I felt like this was the perfect venue, and that the time to do this was now,” Murphy says. “There are a lot of songs on these albums that I haven’t sung in years. This is a rare chance for fans to see them performed live.”
While this is not the first time The Chapel has held residencies with ridiculously awesome artists — in the past, musicians like Charles Bradley, Real Estate, and Television have performed at the former-mortuary-turned-concert-venue — it is the first time they’ve hosted one that lasts an entire month.
