People who love dark and dreary music love Peter Murphy, who provided the vocals that linked 70s glam punk to 90s industrial music. Murphy himself has evolved into quite the crooner and Tucsonans will get a chance to hear his new music and a few oldies with a show starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 25 at The Rialto Theatre. Our generous partners at The Rialto are offering a pair of passes to this concert to readers!


Peter Murphy remains best known as the lead vocalist for Bauhaus, the pioneering post-punk goth rock band of the early 1980s. Bauhaus disbanded in 1983 and since then Murphy played mostly solo but remains a cult mainstay with American fans. This tour, Murphy focuses on his recently released 10th studio album, Lion.
