Peter Murphy has confirmed he has recovered following a heart attack that forced him to postpone a series of concerts earlier this month.

As previously reported, the Bauhaus frontman was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City on August 13 due to shortness of breath, which caused him to postpone a series of residency shows at the city's Le Poisson Rouge.

"Following my recent episode in New York City with my heart attack and being admitted into Lenox Hill Hospital and seeing myself go through the rigors of intensive care, I am very happy to say that I have made a full recovery," Murphy wrote in a statement shared through Instagram. "Thanks to the superb team of doctors, specialists, nurses and care staff. I am so glad to say I am up and running again."

Murphy added, "My tour manager Brian Lowe and my assistant Chantal Thomas were directly instrumental in saving my life and to whom I cannot thank enough. I also want to thank every single friend and fan who has been supporting me throughout this ordeal. I remain grateful especially to my Bauhaus bandmates."

Murphy's post adds that "in lieu of gifts or flowers, Peter has asked to make a donation to the American Heart Association" here.

Rescheduled dates for Murphy's remaining shows at Le Poisson Rouge still yet to be determined. 

Ticket buyers will have their tickets transferred to the corresponding rescheduled date, while refunds are available by emailing info@lprnyc.com by 5 p.m. EDT on August 30.
