2Cellos is a music group from Croatia. It consists of two young cello players, Stejpan Hauser and Luka Sulic. The duo became famous when their version of the Michael Jackson song “Smooth Criminal” received millions of hits on YouTube and went viral all over the world. Their popularity on the internet led to a record deal with “Sony Masterworks”. Since their signing, they have been playing shows all around the globe—a remarkable feat for an act that comprises of playing no more than one instrument. Still, they have become one of the most sought after instrumental groups in the US; 2Cello tickets sell out almost immediately after hitting the market.
2CELLOS’ live show is nothing short of captivating. The energy between the classically-trained pair is contagious as they use their classical instruments to fit a modern repertoire. The concerts include songs from their self–titled debut album as well as their internationally acclaimed second release IN2ITION. Recent set lists have included their massive YouTube hits, “Smooth Criminal” and “Welcome to the Jungle,” along with a trio of their popular renditions of AC/DC songs “Back in Black,” “You Shook Me All Night Long” and “Highway to Hell.” Rounding out the set are their unique covers of rock and pop songs from Jimi Hendrix, Coldplay, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana and Sting plus classical repertoire which showcases their mastery of the instrument.
2CELLOS will continue supporting their latest album, ‘Celloverse’, released on January 9th, 2015 via Sony Masterworks. Their previous album, ‘In2ition’, reached #1 on both the Croatian and Japanese Albums charts. In 2011 and 2013, the cello duo toured with superstar Elton John and recently came off a massive Japanese tour in 2014. Members Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser continue to grow in popularity by taking the cello beyond anything people have ever heard before. They’ve achieved sensational success by performing many different genres of music.
“…Go and see them live, becuase it really is astonishing! I can’t remember seeing anything as exciting as them since I saw Jimi Hendrix live back in the 60’s…” – Elton John
