2CELLOS announced their Let There Be Cello Tour in support of their latest album. A follow-up to the 2017 release of “Score,” “Let There Be Cello” finds the pair exploring a diverse catalog with their signature boundary-breaking playing style. The collection includes their take on everything from the latest pop hits (“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi) to hard-hitting rock songs (“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor and “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes) to celebrated classics (“Imagine” by John Lennon and “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen) to never-before-heard original compositions (“Concept2” and “Cadenza”) for a listening experience unlike any other. Pre-order for the album is available everywhere now.
An international sensation since 2011’s rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” reached video viral fame on YouTube, Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have since created a name for themselves with their energetic and dynamic stringed spectacle. Having amassed over one billion streams globally and 750 million YouTube video views in the years since, 2CELLOS have taken the cello to unimagined heights as their signature style breaks down the boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. The release of “Let There Be Cello” marks 2CELLOS’ fifth studio album in the wake of their 2011 self-titled debut, “In2ition”, “Celloverse” and “SCORE”, all available on Sony Music Masterworks.
