Lightning strikes on live double-album “Two”
PLUS: Chick & Béla celebrate new album with epic live concert tour
Two: A New Album Years in the Making ...
With material from more than 55 shows, spanning years and packed with musical brilliance, — how would you pick what ultimately makes it into their new album?
Well, the artists listened to every single show, every take, every improvisation and found the best-of-the-best, "super-magic" renditions. Watch the announcement video to get the full story. Béla says it best:
Lightning would strike, and things would happen that we never could have planned.Béla

So, to celebrate the new album, the guys booked an epic live tour this fall (2015) that's going to spill over into next spring, too (2016).
Q: Have you thought about what you're going to play on these tours?
CC: I know that whatever we do is going to be musical. It’s my favorite way to perform. Which is causally, like hanging out. You get the audience into that relaxed demeanor, they feel comfortable, they can listen, they can respond. And then things start rolling, then the creativity starts to become less and less constrained.
BF: Every night will have its own personality, and follow the energy of the room, the space and the audience that’s there, and how we’re feeling. We’ll build on what we did the night before, go to the next place. That’s the fun part of it.
