Peter Murphy (formerly of goth/post-punk legends Bauhaus) had a heart attack Tuesday night in New York City, his publicist has revealed in a press release. The 62-year-old is currently in the hospital recovering and the remaining shows in his residency at New York venue Le Poisson Rouge have been postponed to later dates to be determined. The press release says Murphy went to the hospital yesterday evening due to shortness of breath and that early this morning they were informed that he had had a heart attack.

Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital treated Murphy. He has issued this statement:

"Mr. Murphy was admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction. He had two stents placed in his right coronary artery and was started on medications to manage his heart condition. Due to HIPAA regulations we cannot reveal further details of his condition. He is still in the hospital for continued monitoring of his condition."

Murphy's family has issued this statement: "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!"

Le Poisson Rouge has issued this statement: "All of us at LPR are devastated by this news. Peter's performance and presence over the past twelve days has been amazing - both onstage and off. We wish Peter a swift and full recovery and look forward to his successful return to LPR."

The shows for August 15, 16, 18, and 19 have been postponed. The press release points out: "Ticket buyers will have their tickets transferred to the corresponding rescheduled date OR can request a refund by emailing (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by 5PM EST on August 30, 2019."
