Having amassed over a billion views on YouTube for their strikingly original and self-made music videos, The Piano Guys return to the San Jose Civic with Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson.
In June, The Piano Guys debuted a new, out-of-this-world visual, taking viewers on a journey to Pandora for their rendition of the Avatar theme. Filmed at Disney’s World of Avatar, the new video immerses its viewers in the fantastical world inspired by the James Cameron film and music of composer James Horner. The Piano Guys perform their rendition of Avatar’s theme song amongst the floating mountains of Pandora and its bioluminescent rainforest, resulting in a breathtaking and dreamlike visual.
Since formally introducing themselves in 2011 on YouTube, The Piano Guys have unassumingly arrived as a musical phenomenon. Over the course of five studio records, two Christmas releases, and a fan-favorite live album, they have impressively tallied 2 billion-plus global streams, clocked upwards of 1.7 billion YouTube views, earned six No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top Classical Albums Chart, sold out concerts in almost every corner of the world, averaged nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and attracted a diehard audience. They’ve appeared in the New York Times, Fast Company, BuzzFeed, Mashable and People, were featured on CBS Sunday Morning, and performed on the Today Show, Good Morning America and The Tonight Show.
