Please make some noise if you are totally in love with 2Cellos. If you don’t know who they are, we are going to rectify that travesty and you will thank us for it.
The quick and dirty
Before you settle in for the ear and eye candy that is 2Cellos, here is the quick and dirty on what you need to know.
• Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are Croatian. That sound you hear is us packing our bags for sunny Croatia.
• They joined Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour in 2011. Of the dynamic duo, Elton John said, “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 60s.”
• Hauser performed twice for Prince Charles.
• Yes, they are coming to the U.S. in February of 2015. Check tour dates here.
• These accomplished cellists made their mark when they did their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” Since then, they have been breaking all genre boundaries by taking pieces from every end of the musical spectrum and making them their own, as you are about to see. Here is their latest video release, “I Will Wait.”
Prior to this, our favorite 2Cellos video displays the duo’s mad cello skills in a tongue-in-cheek adaptation of “Thunderstruck,” complete with an Angus Young tribute.
