Since their inception at 1978, Bauhaus became a landmark of a new musical era of the British scene. They offered a new perspective to the dark sounds of post punk blending the genre with their influences that ranged from glam rock and funk to dub and reggae. Always innovative and eclectic, Bauhaus made a splash from their very first single, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and continued moving up the ranks of their scene with a series of releases on the legendary label, Beggars Banquet.
Their LPs, In The Flat Field (1980), Mask (1981), The Sky’s Gone Out (1982) and Burning From The Inside (1983) and their “theatrical” performances defined the goth-rock genre and built one of the most loyal fanbases the scene has ever seen.
The first shows of their tour the past November (in Mexico, London and New York) caused a sensation. “Tonight, we experienced the evolution of Bauhaus”, the press wroteabout their sold-out performances in front of their fans.
Get ready for an unforgettable night full of original classics like “The Passion of Lovers”, “Double Dare”, “Kick In The Eye” and “She’s In Parties” plus the famous cover songs from artists like David Bowie, Brian Eno and Iggy Pop.
All We Ever Wanted Was (Is) Bauhaus.
