Bauhaus co-founders Peter Murphy and David J Haskins are set to celebrate the band’s 40th Anniversary with a “Ruby Celebration” tour, named after the gemstone issued for 40 year wedding anniversaries.
The tour sees the two as half of the quartet in the group hailed as The Godfathers of Goth playing their debut album In The Flat Field in its entirety, as well as promising an extended encore of Bauhaus classics during dates scheduled this autumn across Europe and Australia.
The tour follows an appearance by the duo of Murphy and Haskins performing the music of Bauhaus in Mexico this past April, that the pair will follow up with an appearance at the W-Festival in Belgium next month.
Meanwhile, the other two members of Bauhaus, Daniel Ash, and Kevin Haskins, have just finished another round of touring as their new band Poptone, also recently releasing a live album recently featuring tracks culled from the live catalog of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, and Tones On Tail.
Additionally—according to a press release issued by Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy, we can expect later this year “a series of coloured vinyl Bauhaus reissues” to celebrate the band’s “Ruby” Anniversary.
A special edition of “Bela” in a red velvet inner sleeve perhaps?
