Englishmen don't want to lose their minds over t.A.T.u.

Time of publication: 16.04.2003 (02:24)
It seems that the popularity of the Russian pop-duo t.A.T.u. in the West is cooling down. In spite of the fact that their single All The Things She Said is still in the most influential British chart, the inhabitants of the UK do not show any greater interest in seeing t.A.T.u. live. Three huge performances at Wembley and Manchester, which the 18 year-olds Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova are intended to give at the beginning of the next month are turning into a disaster. The reason is a low interest to see the concerts. For instance, the Wembley concert which is scheduled on May 2, has sold only to 30%. The Brittish tabloid Daily Star reports that this disaster is caused by Ivan Shapovalov, who decided to promote the concerts at a low budget. Things were looking so serious the British promoters were flown to Moscow over the weekend for an emergency meeting with manager Ivan Shapovalov. He has now ordered a last minute advertising blitz to turn the situation around.
However, other sources close to the band have told Hot that the dates were too hastily organised - and their is fear for their success.
