RENO, Nev. (Dec. 20, 2018) — In 1996, Finnish orchestral rockers Apocalyptica released their epic debut album “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos.” The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for years to come. The band, composed of classically-trained cellists, will perform live at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Saturday, May 11.

Upon its release, “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” was a new approach on the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. Decades later, the album is still being celebrated through live touring and the release of a live version of the album. Even more, Apocalyptica created their very own genre and laid the foundation to a career that has lasted over 20 years, and counting, with millions of records and sold out shows around the world.

Since they formed, Apocalyptica has released eight studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals along with some vocal-based songs. Whatever styles they’ve explored, from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms, their music has always been gripping, dynamic and full melody.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Dec. 20 starting at $35 and $45 and can be purchased at or by calling 775-325-7401.
