Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova appealed to their fans via a live transmission on NTV before the concert in Tokyo where they invited the fans to take part in the show. There were very many girls willing to be on the same stage as Yulia and Lena. t.A.T.u. arrived in two vans to the Dome Arena in Tokyo for the final rehearsal and started with a run-through of Prostye Dvizheniya (Simple Motions). The fans thoroughly prepared before meeting their idols – they learned how to say “hello” in Russian. According to the show scenario, the Japanese schoolgirls should have appeared on stage during the song Not Gonna Get Us, dressed in famous t.A.T.u. school uniforms. But a problem arose at that moment: the fans were so shell-shocked by t.A.T.u.'s presence that the sight of the girls, the fans simply froze. Hundred of girls on stage held their breath and could not move an inch.

"Let me come closer to them! Do you speak English?" said Yulia, trying to find the way out of this confusing situation. The fans took this action of Yulia’s with a great enthusiasm and rushed towards her. Fortunately, the security was near at that moment and protected t.A.T.u. from the jumping fans.
