INSTRUMENTALISTS 2CELLOS will join Elton John for his live show at the Great Yorkshire Showground in June.

The concert takes place in the showground’s main ring on Bank Holiday Tuesday, June 5, and 2CELLOS will open the show.

The classically trained musicians, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, have performed together since January last year and in that time have become internet sensations, with a major record deal and a management contract.

It was last summer that the duo first joined Elton John and his band on their world tour.

Heather Parry, deputy chief executive of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, which owns the showground, said: “We are very much looking forward to hosting our first major pop concert and this announcement just underlines what a superb evening it will be.”

Immediately prior to performing at Harrogate Elton John will be taking part in The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.
