Peter Murphy arrived in front of the Observatory on Sunday night to play an all-Bauhaus set that reaffirmed his place as the Godfather of Goth Rock. And despite all of his recent legal troubles, he hit the stage with unfazed charisma, kicking things off with "King Volcano," before diving into a lengthy, well-attended set.
Murphy picked a large selection of Bauhaus songs to play from across his catalog. And at one point Murphy had his bassist, pull out and play a violin for the first half of " A Strange Kind of Love," one of his solo classics. It was beautiful to hear it in person and it was fantastic that he had made sure to play the violin with it. It was a very nice added touch to the set list.
