Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy Ejected From His Own Concert

The goth rock singer was filmed having a physical altercation with venue security

Peter Murphy of Bauhaus was reportedly ejected from his concert at Nalen in Stockholm, Sweden last night (December 12) after expressing aggressive behavior, as Slicing Up Eyeballs notes (via Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter).

One of the below videos shows Murphy kicking a stage light and throwing a bottle into the crowd. Another video below appears to show Murphy being pinned to the ground by security following a verbal altercation. In a Facebook post on the venue’s event page, concert organizers responded to the reports by claiming that the show was cut short after “the artist acted in an unacceptable way towards the audience and our staff.” The post has since been taken down, though a Nelan representative says the venue didn’t delete it and points out that Murphy’s Facebook page has access to the event listing. Pitchfork has reached out to Murphy’s representatives for more information.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know most have never heard of this band, but I am a huge fan. I'm seeing this show in Atlanta, Feb 8. Very much looking forward to it. Murphy has always been a prima donna. It is his actions that broke up the band in 83 and 2008. I saw the original line up back in 2006. Great show! Hopeful he can keep his <censored> together to finish up the North American tour.

BTW, Murphy converted to Islam many years ago. I wonder if his aggressive attitude has anything to do with his religion? ;)

It might explain his attraction to it.

I still like Michael Schenker and go to his concerts when I can. Same for Yngwie Malmsteen. Caught Schenker in Tampa earlier this year, and he had his current singer (Dougie White) and three previous singers (Graham Bonnet, whom I've always been a fan of, Gary Barden, and Robin McCauley) on the tour. Having played in bands, I'm all too familiar with how lead singers can be. So you'd think having four would be a disaster. But they actually get along great, and during the shows (and sound checks) the guys are always clowning around and cutting up with each other. Makes for a great concert.

Funny thing about Schenker, Malmsteen, and Bonnet: They've all quit drinking (and whatever else they were doing), and are all performing better than ever before.

I was at an Alice Cooper concert in Seattle way back in the early-to-mid 70s where he was arrested immediately after the show, before he even got offstage. I can't remember the official wording of the charges, but it was something about "inciting obscenities".

:lol:

I am wrapping Christmas packages and listening to Nat King Cole and Dean Martin Christmas records - yes, I have a turntable! Miss the old entertainers.

Back in the day Alice was considered the worst of the worst by some - then he started golfing with Barry Goldwater! Now the other side considers him the worst of the worst! :whistling:

They used to say in the 70s that kiss music would drive your pets insane.

Yeah, back in the day Alice Cooper was "shock rock". Not the first by any means (many consider Screamin' Jay Hawkins the first-ever shock rocker), but definitely and deliberately controversial.

I saw him in concert twice, and both shows were memorable to say the least.

I was always a fan of Bauhaus, and though I liked Murphy's solo stuff, I liked the Love and Rockets more. One might dare say that as a band, they were better without Murphy. He, as with a lot of lead singers, get the diva attitude.

I remember Graham Bonnet also was lead singer for Rainbow. One of the songs he did with them was a cover of Since You've Been Gone.

Yep, and he continued to play that song with Alcatrazz. Still does it in his solo shows; hopefully I'll catch one soon.



Blows me away how he still sounds as good today, at 70, as he did in 1983. My singing voice was gone before I hit 40.
