In November, the four members of Bauhaus played together for the first time in more than a decade.

The original line-up of singer Peter Murphy, guitarist Danial Ash, drummer Kevin Haskins and bassist David J will headline London’s Alexandra Palace on April 8 next year.

Tickets for the gig go on sale on Thursday, December 19 at 10am.

Formed in Northampton in the late 1970s, the band were pioneers of the gothic rock genre.
