From the outset, we were welcomed by a wonderful and youthful orchestra, the witty banter of Luic and Stepjan , then they started to play songs from Score, and then got the party started. they played THunderstruck , Satisfaction , Avicci, Highway to Hell, a bunch more i can't remember, being so awestruck. They closed with with With or without you. I had a blast, too bad it seemed too short.

ONLY PLAYED FOR A HR
Great music but only played for just over a hr

I misunderstood the seating when I booked. I was on the floor. Difficulty in seeing from time to time. The lights were too bright, and not necessary, they have talent alone. Too loud. My ears were ringing on the way home. I had no idea jon mclaughlin was playing and I wasn't pleased. I thought I paid for a two hour performance of 2 Cello's. I agree, they looked tired. The sexual innuendo I could have done without.

First act, Jon McLaughlin was awesome. Totally unexpected bonus performance, super talented.
2Cellos are also SO incredibly talented, but—one was obviously intoxicated, thought it made things a bit awkward. Show was also mostly focused on their heavy rock side, super loud base/drums, tons of flashing lights. Not the most enjoyable if you're not into that kind of thing. We like lots of different music, from rock to jazz to bluegrass (Coldplay, Bruce, Lumineers, etc.) but this just seemed like really heavy old school rock. Just wasn’t what we were expecting. Service at the Q was great, everyone so friendly and helpful. Temp was cold though, lots of people complaining around us. Seats were good. Fyi, would not take elderly or kids to the show due to the loudness and some sexual innuendo. Ate at Greenhouse before, awesome meal, great service.

WONDERFUL, MOST SOUNDS REALLY GREAT, BUT THEY LOOK WEARY!!!
I agree with the Carol from Ohio review. First act was good. A surprise "filler"/opener, but ok, as I cant deny the 2 cellos then seemed to work their fingers off once they were on.! But i agree that one cellist, you know who, seemed a bit awkwardly wasted. Plus we have always enjoyed their music, but the newer, BLARING, rock tunes were a bit over the top for us. Love the more classical stuff, as well as the music which really showcases their playing-distinctly. No complaints about the drummer , either, but these guys dont need any screaming amplifiers or accompaniment. I hope they dont fry themselves out completely at this rate. They are great. This is Just an opinion about the content. Their rendition of Halleluiah was amazing!!

They didnot at all play during the first half and used a filler, jon mclaughlin, who was mediocre best. The worst part is that no where is a mention of mclaughlin filling up the first half and had that been the case i would have only attended the second half.
Luke Louis from Nashville, Tennessee
Two Cellos played for a little over an hour on what we expected to be a two hour set. They were looking road weary and one seemed to be more than a little high as he almost tripped on cable across the stage. The other half of the duo was handling most of the heavy lifting. However even he played several bars in the wrong key.
These are two very talented musicians but at last nights concert they were on cruse control and failed to live up to potential.
The sound guy was great and the lighting operator was on point. However am not sure it is a good idea to blind the audience with moving lights and strobes for so much of the performance. Much of the graphics looked like a bad acid trip from 1965.
