Tatu to tour Russia and Ukraine

Time of publication: 20.07.2006 (15:21)
Tatu are taking off for a big tour "Dangerous and Moving" all over Russia and Ukraine. About 30 cities would have the Tatu-time of your life and would break their voices singing along with Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina. Kilowatts of the live sound would crash over concert arenas, which were risky enough to host fans of the most provocative Russian group. Finally, after a long break, Russia and Ukraine would catch up with the new Tatu.

August, 1. Tatu, known in the nearest past as pop-rebellions and legendary scandal-launchers, but in the present – as a well-tuned team of the girls themselves and the band: Troy McCubbin on the solo guitar, Sven Martin on keyboards, Steve Wilson on drums and Doman Voevec on bass guitar, are about to launch their "Dangerous and Moving" Tour. The tour starts in Yalta and will cover about 30 cities of Russia.

The show includes hits from the Dangerous and Moving album such as: Ludi Invalidy, All About Us, Friend Or Foe, Obezianka Nol and already legendary songs of the pop history from their debut album Ya Soshla S Uma (200 km/h In a Wrong Lane, rem. Ya Soshla S Uma (All The Things She Said, rem., Nas Ne Dogonyat (Not Gonna Get Us, rem., Ne Ver, Ne Boisya, Ne Prosi (Eurovision 2003 entry, rem. A one and a half live show will be filled with the light and pyrotechnics.

Tatu's first album 200 km/h In a Wrong Lane took all world awards except Grammy. Their second album Dangerous and Moving became a powerful comeback, which was expected by only a fraction of fans. They weren't wrong. For the last six months, Tatu made a decent roundtrip through half of the world and received a number of awards. The last addition to this collection includes several "plates" of the National Muz TV 2006 Awards.

Since the release of the Tatu second album Dangerous and Moving, Tatu could only give out only one gig in Russia in St. Petersburg. It can be considered as a start of the tour. The gig was so impressively played that Tatu gave their permission to release the video recording of it on a DVD. The release of the live St. Petersburg gig DVD Truth (Russian interpretation if which is "The Present", rem. TatySite.Net), will take place in Japan on September the 20th of 2006. By the way, each following live show can be easily recorded and released as a DVD.

Lena Katina: "The live performance is very important. Before we've had always performed with a full playback but we grow up musically we become more professional. If you are a professional you got to realize that your fans expect the energy of the live vocal performance instead of a fake. Otherwise, you can listen to our album without leaving the house".

Yulia Volkova: "By the way, after the gig in St. Petersburg we were told that we should move a bit more on stage. But, hey guys, we are singing live and it's not the simplest technical thing in the world. We move when it doesn't disturb to create music. To tell the truth, I couldn't hold it back in St. Petersburg – I threw out my high-heel shoes out and jumped as crasy with everyone else. It was super!"

The tour is scheduled as follows: Yalta, Sotchi, Yuzhna-Sakhalinsk, Nahodka, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Samara, Voronesh, Rostov-na-Donu, Krasnodar, Kirov, Kazan, Tcheboksary, Nizhny Novgorod, Odessa, Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkov, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Tumen, Perm, Ekaterinburg, Tchelyabinsk, Ufa, Orenburg.

The tour schedule may suffer some changes.

P.S. Don't expect kisses. Expect more than that!
