During his performance at his New York Residency at Le Poisson Rouge on Tuesday August 13, 2019, Peter Murphy was unable to complete his performance and was soon hospitalized. He will be unable to complete the remaining dates of his residency.

This statement was made by the venue Le Poisson Rouge NYC:

“On the evening of Tuesday August 13, 2019, Peter Murphy was rushed to a local NYC hospital due to shortness of breath and was unable to perform the evening’s scheduled concert at Le Poisson Rouge. Early Wednesday morning, we were informed that Peter had suffered a heart attack.

Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital treated Peter and issued the following 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."

Peter was able to complete 12 days of his residency and will not be able to complete the remaining 4 dates. These dates are expected to be postponed or refunds can be issued by emailing by 5PM EST on August 30, 2019.

Some sources are stating that the rest of the shows are cancelled, while others state the dates are postponed. We will update this sort as more information becomes available.
