Bauhaus' Peter Murphy reschedules live dates following heart attack

After making a full recovery from a recent heart attack, former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy has rescheduled his New York residency.

The 60-year-old musician was rushed to New York City hospital when he started to complain of shortness of breath and, upon arrival to the hospital, Murphy was quickly diagnosed with a myocardial infarction. 

To save his life, doctors were forced to place two stents in his right coronary artery. After a difficult period, Murphy has now confirmed he is “up and running again” after the surgery.

“Following my recent episode in New York City with my heart attack and being admitted into Lenox Hill Hospital and seeing myself go through the rigors of intensive care, I am very happy to say that I have made a full recovery,” Murphy said in a statement posted on social media. 

“Thanks to the superb team of doctors, specialists, nurses and care staff. I am so glad to say I am up and running again.”

He added: “My tour manager Brian Lowe and my assistant Chantal Thomas were directly instrumental in saving my life and to whom I cannot thank enough. “I also want to thank every single friend and fan who has been supporting me throughout this ordeal. I remain grateful especially to my Bauhaus bandmates.”

Now, Murphy is getting back to business and will be back on stage. See the tour dates, below.
