3rd March 2022 | Category: Concerts

Bauhaus have announced dates for their first US tour in 16 years.

In May, following an appearance at Pasadena’s Cruel World Fest, the band will play headlining shows in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, and Tempe. They’re also set to play two shows at New York’s Kings Theatre in September.

After breaking up in 1983, Bauhaus reformed and have had a number of different formations over the years. Following a 20th anniversary tour in 1998, the band returned for a performance at Coachella in 2005 before going on to support Nine Inch Nails the following year.

Back in 2018, Murphy and J hit the road in the UK for a string of shows celebrating 40 years of Bauhaus. The December run concluded with a performance at London’s O2 Forum in Kentish Town.

Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, and David J first reunited in late 2019, playing a three shows in Los Angeles. However, additional US dates scheduled in 2020 were canceled due to the pandemic.

Bauhaus will also join Morrissey and Blondie on the headline line-up for Cruel World festival. It will take place on May 14 and 15 this year at Brookside at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Other names on the bill include Devo, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Psychedelic Furs, Violent Femmes, Public Image Ltd and more.

Following their 1980 debut record ‘In The Flat Field’, Bauhaus released a further four studio albums – ‘Mask’ (1981), ‘The Sky’s Gone Out’ (1982), ‘Burning From The Inside’ (1983) and ‘Go Away White’ (2008).

Speaking to NME upon the release of their latest effort, David J said that the band’s “chemistry was so volatile” during its recording that they decided to go their separate ways once again. “The record definitely feels like a final statement,” he explained.
