Videos: 2Cellos Perform AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” with Guitarist Steve Vai

Check out this cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” by 2Cellos.

These guys might look familiar; they’re the Croatian cellists who had a taste of online success when their dueling-cellos version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” went viral a few months ago.

2Cellos have released a new album, In2ition, on Sony Masterworks. It features Elton John (singing Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well”) and covers of songs by Prodigy and AC/DC. Steve Vai guests on an inspired version of “Highway to Hell,” which you can check out below.

The band — which, of course, features two cellos — will be announcing a US tour that will kick off April 2 at NYC’s Highline Ballroom. Stay tuned for updates. For more information, check out their website.
