2CELLOS, music’s most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, announce they will visit New Zealand in November as part of their Australia/New Zealand tour – performing music from their album Celloverse and other favourites from across all their albums. They are set to play Auckland's Town Hall on December 6, 2016.
Their tour to Australia in January 2015 sold out across all states as their fan base continues to grow. Playing to packed houses, their love of classical and contemporary music is on show on stage where they play everything from Bach and Vivaldi to their much loved AC/DC.
Propelled into international fame in 2011 after their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” went viral the Croatian cellists, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, continue to wow their fans with dynamic music videos and covers of today’s most classic and popular songs. Most recently their Baroque inspired, yet high octane head-banging video of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” garnered over 45 Million views to date.
The duo returned to their rock roots on their 2015, critically acclaimed, third album Celloverse.
2CELLOS playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. They have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing the classics as they are when rocking out to modern contemporary tracks from artists such as Coldplay, Nirvana and their all time favourite, AC/DC.
They have sold out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim.
2016 marks the 2CELLOS 5th anniversary and marked the occasion with a huge open air show to 50,000 people in their home town of Zagreb earlier this summer. Over the last 5 years they have had some incredible career highlights including a performance on Glee. 2CELLOS were the first instrumentalists to be featured on the hit TV show. They have also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, The Tonight Show, and The Bachelor Live Wedding Special.
