On Thursday, 24 February 2015, approximately 3 hours before the scheduled start time of the concert, the 2CELLOS performance scheduled for the Weinberg Center in Frederick MD, and all subsequent concerts on the US 2015 2CELLOS tour (including Toronto) was cancelled due to an injury to Stjepan Hauser's neck. Sources report a ruptured disk and the band has returned to Croatia for Stjepan to receive medical care. Stjepan has been having issues with his neck for some time now, probably over a year, possibly due to his strenuous cello activites on stage during Highway to Hell and Thunderstruck.
We wish him a speedy recovery and a return to the touring schedule that both he and Luka (and Dusan) so love. The announcement posted to the bands official Facebook page appears below.
