Tatu are set to call off their British tour after ticket sales collapsed, according to reports.
Parents didn't want their children seeing the X-rated show, the reports said.
But the Russian pop duo, who pose as lesbians, will insist it is being cancelled because one of them, Julia Volkova, has lost their voice, The Sun newspaper added.
It said ticket sales for their three UK dates were so poor, promoters are set to lose Ј300,000 in costs.
The duo have sold under 2,000 tickets in total for their two nights at the 12,000-capacity Wembley Arena, it added.
Only 1,000 tickets for their concert at the 10,000-seat Manchester Evening News Arena have been sold, it said.

According to other reports, it is said that the organizers are the ones that cancelled the contract with promoters, last night (29th of April). Tatu were unaware of the cancellations, but have arrived in London anyway to pursue promotion tours with interviews and appearances.
