2CELLOS Announce Their First North American Tour

March 19, 2013


NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The innovative Croatian duo 2CELLOS, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have announced their first US national tour starting April 2013 in support of IN2ITION, their sophomore album available now on Sony Masterworks. Recorded around the world in Rome, Nashville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and their native Croatia, IN2ITION is a collection of Sulic and Hauser’s classical-pop/rock takes on unmistakable tracks by artists including Rihanna, Muse, AC/DC, Lang Lang, Coldplay and Elton John. 2CELLOS’ live show is nothing short of captivating. The energy between the classically-trained pair is palpable as they use their classical instruments to fit a contemporary repertoire.

Of their live performances the LA 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!”

2CELLOS are excited and proud to bring IN2ITION on the road, to show wider audiences just how versatile a cello can be. “We’ve practiced all our lives, and in this project we’ve succeeded in extending the possibilities of the cello and bringing it to a wider audience,” say the band.

To experience the band live check out their version of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” here.
