Peter Murphy and David J reunited in Mexico last night after 12 years apart—for the first in a series of Summer Festival dates celebrating 40 years of their seminal post-punk band Bauhaus—a group who undeniably set the mold for gothic rock.
While the other half of the Bauhaus lineup Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins are only performing select Bauhaus tracks in their Tones on Tail, and Love and Rockets heavy project Poptone, The bass and voice of the haus of bau graced the festival stage in Mexico to perform a set of 12 Bauhaus classics ahead of their twice rescheduled run of shows in San Francisco this summer.
The scene was not unlike the what fans saw during the 2006 tour with Nine Inch Nails, with the sun was still shining bright at the Roxy Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, while Peter Murphy and David J opened their set with the trademark “Double Dare”, leading into “In the Flat Field,” “God In An Alcove”, “Silent Hedges,” “Boys”, “She’s In Parties”, “Kick In The Eye”, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” “Stigmata Martyr,” “The Passion Of Lovers”, “Dark Entries” and the standard set closer of Bauhaus’s fantastic cover of David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.”
Below, check out the setlist from yesterday’s concert, with inclusion of some video via Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook:
