2013 Red Carpet Series - A Performance Is Worth A Thousand Words.
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - 7:30pm
In April, The Orpheum Theatre is excited to present 2CELLOS, a nationally and internationally acclaimed musical duo.
The meteoric success of 2CELLOS started when former cello rivals Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser decided to join forces. In January 2011, they uploaded a unique cello version of “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson onto YouTube. Within just a few weeks, their video became a huge viral sensation, receiving over 5 million views. This led to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Elton John on his worldwide tour.
Luka and Stjepan’s success extends way beyond YouTube and their fanbase continues to grow around the world.
The duo has appeared on national television shows like The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (twice in 6 months!) and Stefan Raab’s TV total in Germany.
On January 31st they appeared as the special musical guests on Fox’s hit television series Glee where they performed “Smooth Criminal” in the Michael Jackson tribute episode. This was the first time that an instrumental duo had performed on the show in the coveted guest spot. The 2CELLOS’ arrangement of the song, which featured actors Grant Gustin and Naya Rivera, sold incredibly well debuting at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landing the 2CELLOS album in the Top 10.
