Roughly translated (if anyone can be more precise, please let us know!) title : 2CELLOS: One fan at every concert for a year
"The magic happens here," briefly and clearly on their official page on Facebook describes the fan atmosphere at concerts of musical phenomenon called 2Cellos.
The magic these days is witnessed by tens of thousands of fans at spectacular concerts by Stjepan Hauser and Luka Šulić, who are spending July touring Europe.
The audience will get a new dose of these two young Croatian cello geniuses on July 29 when they performed at ATP Umag. This summer, as well as several previous ones, there is no rest for our cellists. They say they are used to that because there is no rest for three and a half years!
In a quick break between concerts and finishing third studio album they found the time to reveal to us where they are greeted by enthusiastic audiences; what makes it terribly annoying to travel with world stars that want them to cooperate. A charmer and an incorrigible rogue Hauser, who is currently single, admitted to us the modest and shy girl will have the best chance with him.
What's it like to be on tour for one day with 2Cellos?
Our tour is murderous, traveling all day, so we get to soundcheck, then follows the concert, after the show signing autographs for at least two hours and then travel further. And so the circle. We sleep wherever and whenever wecan. The pace is deadly, but we are young and still hang on! Rarely have a day off when we're on tour, and when that happens, it is always something ... currently in the studio finish third studio album. No rest with us for three and a half years.
Do you have a ritual before going on stage?
There is no ritual or philosophy, just run up on stage and give hundred percent of yourself as if that is our first and last appearance in life. And so every night.
What is the atmosphere of the concerts you have done so far, where the audience was the loudest, craziest ...
The last three concerts were a total blast. From Exit in Serbia and to Malta and Greece, the crowd was amazing. In Greece we did not get off the stage. We played everything we know and yet it was not enough, we needed more songs! We are delighted with our fans around the world whose number is increasing day by day. The atmosphere in the audience at each concert is all crazier and crazier. We do not know how far it can go. Each concert is increasing in chaos!
You play at a tennis tournament Vegeta Croatia Open in Umag July 29th is you two ever ventured into playing tennis?
Not a chance. If you get tennis elbow, there goes our career!
Is there anything that you really miss while you're on tour, for example, home-cooked food? Either of you love foreign cuisine and what is favorite?
We like to try local, authentic food. We want to taste the specialties of each country. We eat and like everything-- a variety of cuisines. No one is better than the other; Mexican, Greek, Turkish, to the Chinese, Japanese, Korean cuisine, we like it all.
In an interview three years ago, when are you going to conquer the world, you said that you do not like to sleep in Five Star hotels. In the meantime, have you become accustomed to such luxury or still prefer to stay in hotels with three stars?
We do not like five-star hotels though we are still regularly are booked in them, but whenever the two of us the opportunity to book a hotel, we take it as a cheaper and worse possible because in such often get the best sleep and eats. At the luxurious places staff is so hard with their false kindness, every five minutes and ask, "Sir, do you need something?" They give you no peace until you eat, constantly interrupted-- if you want this, do you want it in the morning ... regularly wake up with a sore neck and back due to "preudobnih" [?] bed and pillow, huge bag where you do not know where to put my head. Breakfast is so much choice in the end you do not know what to eat and take a bit of everything.
The current single, "I Will Wait" recorded are on the idyllic Plitvice Lakes. Is there any place of your dreams for an ideal scene?
Croatia itself has so many wonderful locations so we hoped that we will succeed in all "process." What new location do we want to "conquer"? Which music stars you wish to work with? Our desire is to fill Wembley stadium and work with U2, The Rolling Stones, AC / DC, Sting, Eminem ...
What's the craziest thing a fan has ever done for you?
One of our fans took a year to monitor absolutely every concert, not missing a one, no matter in which part of the world!
Elton John is said to have your concerts the most exciting thing he had seen and heard since the 1960s listened to Jimi Hendrix live. How do you see the comparison?
What to say? That's the best compliment anyone can get!
You say the world has become a second home. Can you imagine that career moving you from Croatia?
We have that kind of career where it does not really matter where we live because we travel all the time anyway. The few days that we remain free in a year we spend anywhere, and the most beautiful of them spend at home. Can you imagine what your life will look like in ten years? I'll be on stage!
