Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom to Host 2CELLOS on October 17 at 7:30 pm

Innovative Croatian Duo Fit Classical Instruments to a Modern Repertoire

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 07, 2013) -  How versatile can a cello be? Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the innovative Croatian duo behind 2CELLOS, will answer that question for a New York City audience when their Fall U.S. tour comes to Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom, located at 311 West 34th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, on Thursday, October 17 at 7:30 pm.

2CELLOS' live show is nothing short of captivating, with the classically trained pair using their instruments to fit a modern repertoire. Their concerts include songs from their self-titled debut album as well as their internationally acclaimed second release IN2ITION, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, KISS, Deep Purple).

Their unique cello version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" became a viral sensation on YouTube and led to an invitation to join Elton John on his worldwide tour. Their arrangement of the song, which featured Naya Rivera, debuted at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landed their debut album in the Top 100. Since then, the duo has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (multiple times), and many other shows.

"...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 60's..." --Elton John
