A duo from Slovakia and Croatia who each play the cello does not exactly scream big venue and yet 2Cellos will perform at the Bell Centre. They are the real thing. In 2010 they were signed to major label contract with Sony and have played plenty of big shows including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.
Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are both classically trained cellists. Together they have released four albums of instrumental arrangements of popular rock and pop songs. They have also done some purely classical stuff along with some music for films. After they both finished school in London they began in 2011 to release videos on YouTube of covers of different songs. The first that grabbed music fans’ attention was their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal”.
As time went on and they released albums which featured music by Kings of Leon, U2, Guns n Roses, and Coldplay their popularity grew. They toured with Elton John, appeared on the television show Glee and their most recent album, Score, released in 2017 featured the London Symphony Orchestra. It’s focus was television and film music including a Game of Thrones medley.
