Peter Murphy of Bauhaus has suffered a coronary heart assault, a consultant revealed in a press release. He was taken to a New York City hospital on Tuesday night resulting from shortness of breath. Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital mentioned that whereas additional particulars of Murphy’s situation couldn’t be divulged, the singer had “stents placed in his right coronary artery and was started on medications to manage his heart condition.” Murphy continues to be being monitored within the hospital.
Murphy’s performances from August 15-16 and August 18-19 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City—the remaining dates of his residency—have been postponed to an undetermined future date. “We would like to thank the fans for their undying support and hope that Peter will be back on stage with a refreshed heart, stronger than before,” Murphy’s household mentioned in a press release.
