NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Peter Murphy, frontman of goth rock legends Bauhaus, was hospitalized on Tuesday night after suffering a heart attack in New York.
Murphy was scheduled to perform at Le Poisson Rouge early on Wednesday morning but was forced to postpone the event while he was treated.
Lenox Hill Hospital Cardiologist Jason Song issued the following statement: “Mr. Murphy was admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction, had two stents placed in his right coronary artery, and was started on medications to manage his heart condition. He remains in the hospital for continued monitoring of his condition.”
Due to his health, Murphy postponed the remaining shows of his residency which were scheduled for August 15th, 16th, 18th, and 19th at Le Poisson Rouge. As of yet, no new dates have been announced for the affected performances.
“All of us at LPR are devastated by this news. Peter’s performances and presence over the past twelve days have been amazing – both onstage and off. We wish Peter a swift and full recovery and look forward to his successful return to LPR,” a rep for the venue said in a statement.
