Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy Suffers Heart Attack


Bauhaus icon Peter Murphy endured a heart attack on Tuesday evening, August 13th.

Murphy was rushed to a New York City hospital, which meant he had to postpone at string of residency shows at the Le Poisson Rouge.

The star was meant to play a residency show that night in NY but was transported to the area hospital after experiencing shortness of breath.

It was reasoned that he had suffered a heart attack. Lenox Hill Hospital Cardiologist Jason Song told reporters:

“Mr. Murphy was admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction, had two stents placed in his right coronary artery, and was started on medications to manage his heart condition. He remains in the hospital for continued monitoring of his condition.”

Peter has postponed the remaining residency dates on August 15th, 16th, 18th, and 19th and will revealed the rescheduled shows at a later time.

According to Antimusic, Le Poisson Rouge stated, “All of us at LPR are devastated by this news. Peter’s performances and presence over the past twelve days have been amazing – both onstage and off. We wish Peter a swift and full recovery and look forward to his successful return to LPR.”
