SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A nearly month-long summer residency at the Chapel in San Francisco by post-punk vocalist and founding member of Bauhaus Peter Murphy has been postponed due to health reasons, according to an announcement Wednesday.
The extended engagement presented by the Chapel and concert promoter (((folkYEAH!))) Presents was originally set to feature Murphy headlining 15 concerts between June 20th and July 14th.
During a recent check up, doctors discovered nodules on Murphy’s vocal cords, according to the press release issued Wednesday. Treatment of the nodules and the extended period of recovery following treatment required that the scheduled concerts be postponed.
Murphy recorded a video with a message for his fans explaining the issue that was shared on YouTube Wednesday.
The rescheduled dates will now take place in late January and early February. Murphy and his representatives additionally announced two very special “Mr. Moonlight” shows that will feature Bauhaus classics exclusively taking place on February 14th and 15th. Tickets for those shows will go on sale Friday, April 28th at the Chapel website.
