Peter Murphy and David J tour celebrates 40 years of Bauhaus' debut album

It’s not uncommon for overly amped-up fans to be ejected from concerts for rowdy behavior that endangers others.

It’s less common, however, when a performer is ejected from their own show.

So take a dubious bow, Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy, who was removed and wrestled to the ground by security guards during his Dec. 12 concert in Stockholm, Sweden.

The English Goth-rock pioneer’s ejection came after he threw bottles of water and glasses into the crowd and kicked and shattered a stage light.

Presumably, Murphy will be better behaved when he and Bauhaus co-founder David J (a longtime San Diego County resident) perform Thursday at Observatory North Park.

Their show is part of a 40th anniversary tour celebrating the release of Bauhaus’ debut album, “In the Flat Field,” which the group is performing in its entirety. The album came out in 1980, but who’s counting?

Peter Murphy, “40 years of Bauhaus, Ruby Celebration,” featuring David J
