“Bela Lugos’s dead, undead undead undead…” sang Peter Murphy to the first of two sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre a couple of weeks ago celebrating thirty five years of Bauhaus with the Mr. Moonlight Tour. While I would have liked to have seen Bauhaus perform, I wasn’t going to pass up the chance to see Peter Murphy and his band perform an all Bauhaus set.
Opening the show with King Volcano and playing songs like Stigmata Martyr, The Passion of Lovers and of course Bela Lugosi’s Dead, it was definitely a sing-a-long with Peter Murphy kind of night. Peter Murphy looked as cool as ever dancing around stage with his trademark moves. Of course the show wouldn’t have been complete without them ending with the Bauhaus versions of T. Rex‘s Telegram Sam and David Bowie‘s Ziggy Stardust.
The US tour has ended, but he’ll be in Mexico at the Teatro Metropólitan tonight Thursday, August 8th and will follow with shows in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and ending in Sao Paolo, Brazil on Wednesday, August 14th at the Carioca Club
