"...Go and see them live, because 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


NEW YORK, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The innovative Croatian duo 2CELLOS, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser kick off their Fall U.S. tour in Boston on October 16th with dates in New York City, Washington DC, Chicago and many others.  For a complete tour schedule, visit the 2CELLOS' website.

After the success of their debut tour here earlier this year, 2CELLOS are excited to be back in the U.S. to perform again.  They especially enjoy showing audiences just how versatile a cello can be. "We've succeeded in extending the possibilities of the cello through our music and we love sharing it with our fans," say the band.

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.

Of their live performances the Los Angeles Times says "Their hair flies, they press so hard on the strings that the horsehair comes off their bows in bunches, they push themselves physically…[they] get people excited!" 

Sony Masterworks comprises Masterworks Broadway, Masterworks, Okeh, Portrait, RCA Red Seal and Sony Classical imprints. For email updates and information please visit www.SonyMasterworks.com.
