21.01.2006 - Julia Volkova will study at the State University of Management
Julia Volkova, a singer from group Tatu, has decided to enroll at the State University of Management (SUM) to study producing. Volkova, who has managed to reach world-wide popularity and give birth to a baby by 20 years old, has decided to seriously take control of her career, and not rely on unpredictable producers. Julia’s choice to study the basics of copyrights, advertisement and PR in show business, business planning of music projects and the organization of promo-campaigns at SUM was influenced by the suggestion of her colleagues, who in fact lecture in this particular department. Among them, for example, is Sergei Bobza, who represents the "Copyrights in music industry" discipline. He is famous in our country as the leading artist in show business, and was in the past the director of legal matters at Ivan Shapovalov’s producing center, with whom Yulia met several times while working with her ex-producer. Yulia met with several representatives of this profession during the course of her career - such as Artem Troitskyi, Fedor Bondarchuk, Iosif Prigozhin, and Yuryi Aksyuta – and rightfully sees them as the great minds of national music industry, and the only people in the country that could teach the intricacies of the work involved in being a producer and an artist. She was also attracted to the opportunity to be taught by foreign professionals, such as Bel Brown – producer of Boy George, who was especially invited to the SUM to lecture on "The structure of foreign show business". After this, Yulia Volkova plans to take part in an intern program at one of the Western music-recording companies, which is offered by the management of the facility to make sure of successful management of Tatu in the West.

While Yulia is driving the car, she finds out she is being trailed by robots. One of the robots shoots her car with a heat seeking missile, causing Yulia to lose control of her car and causing it to flip over, Yulia manages to escape and kill the robots by making her car explode by pushing a button on her waist. Meanwhile Lena is trapped in prison by an enemy. Yulia breaks inside the enemy's fort and defeats them. The video is available through iTunes in some European countries and the United States.

01.04.2006  - Order of Frienship for Tatu - to be or not to be?
Last week, Tatu were officially nominated for the Order of Friendship at the Russian Parliament. The expert committee of the Russian Ministry of Culture is going to decide whether to honour Lena and Yulia with this State order or not, while the Parliament committee didn't support this nomination. However, public opinion on this issue remains cardinally split. It’s still questionable if the scandalous duo, which sold more albums in Japan that The Beatles themselves, will be awarded or not. Nevertheless, Yulia and Lena will tell us what they generally think about State honours tomorrow in the show "Segodnya" on NTV.
More material on the issue can be found in the Press section of our portal.

The promo visit to Chile scheduled for April 16-21 has been cancelled due to unknown at the moment reasons. The gig in Novisibirsk rescheduled for May 27 remains under the question.
The announced cancellation of the Chilean gig rescheduled first from April, 1 to April 21 and then again to April 22 is withdrawn, while the promo activities scheduled for April 16 - 20 are off. The duo is still in Moscow at the moment. Such a chaos was caused by withdrawal of one of the Chilean sponsors and poor ticket sales.

Both sides express their regrets over the issue.

23.04.2006 - Single Gomenasai - release dates
Release dates of the third Tatu single from their international album Dangerous And Moving became available. The single is expected to be in stores already in May.
"Gomenasai" (Japanese: I'm Sorry.) is a song by Russian recording duo t.A.T.u., taken from their second English language studio album Dangerous and Moving (2005). The song was written by Martin Kierszenbaum, and production was handled by Kierszenbaum and Robert Orton. The song was released in May 2006 as the album's third single by Interscope. The song was not initially supposed to be a single from the studio album as t.A.T.u. did not approve, however Interscope ignored and went forth with the single anyway. Due to conflicts between the label, "Gomenasai" was the last single from their record label.
Musically, it is a pop ballad song with electronic music influences. Lyrically it deals with the group saying "sorry" towards each other, using the Japanese word "Gomenasai", hence the title. "Gomenasai" received mixed to favorable reviews from music critics, who felt it was gentle and one of the group's best vocal songs to date, while some felt it was generic to other ballads. The song was not issued in most countries, but was generally moderate in the music charts. There were two different videos produced for this single: animated and live action.The song was written by Martin Kierszenbaum, and production was handled by Kierszenbaum and Robert Orton. The song was released in May 2006 as the album's third single by Interscope. The song was the group's last official single from the group's record labels; Interscope and Universal Russia. The group did not want to release the song as the third single, but the choice was up to their label who finally decided to release it.
Due to the further conflict, the group decided to leave the record label. The single, however was not the last release, as the group's compilation "The Best" was the final.

26.04.2006 - 'Family Matters'
April 26, a bit after the midnight Tatu took part in the recording of the show Family Matters on Channel 5 of St. Petersburg TV. The show was formed as a talk show, where both the presenter and the audience asked Yulia and Lena questions.Despite the fact that Tatu came to the TV studio right after their arrival to the Moskovsky Railway Station of St. Petersburg, the girls didn't show any particular signs of tiredness and stayed cool. Some got confused by the inscription on Yulia's top, which said "Fuck me. I'm famous". The show presenter Grushevsky clearly didn't know how to relate to all this and tried to find out whether Yulia and Lena were lesbians or not. Yulia and Lena fought such things back by asking counter-questions. The presenter didn't like this order and declared that it was he, who asked questions there. Except a worn-out topic on the girls' relationship, the audience wondered about the reasons of Tatu's appearance at the Fame Factory show and the time spent in the children's band Neposedy.

28.04.2006 - Troy enjoys working with Tatu
Guitar player Troy McCubbin has been working with Tatu for a while now. Once he was chosen by Interscope to play in Tatu to give the group a more powerful live sound at the performances. Now Tatu-girls take him as a part of their family. Yulia and Lena call him "a person of a constant positive charge" and a creative generator of the team.
A few days ago Troy told through his website that he's always happy to see the girls, to rock and tour together with them. "I am really looking forward to seeing Yulia and Lena again and rocking out big time in St. Petersburg.", writes Troy and adds – "I am excited to get to Latin America and tour down there. I know the girls and all us guys in the band are dying to get down there and play some big shows! I love Latin America! The people there are the best and I love their passion for music and life. It really inspires me to keep playing music and to just enjoy life."
Troy McCubbin was born and grew up in Traralgon Victoria, Australia. He began playing the guitar already at the age of 10, when his father helped him to put together a guitar to practice. Having huge interest in music, Troy studied music theory for the next 8 years. There he got fundamental knowledge in jazz, classics and rock under leadership of famous guitar player - Tony Calabro. Later on, Troy moved to Los Angeles to extend his studies. Soon enough he performed together with Аdreinne Frantz at L.A. Music Awards, where he won an award in the category "Best Rock male artist". His early success opened doors for him to perform with such famous artists as: Tatu, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Clarkson. Troy is also a member of Latin Artist, Ana Victoria, which are signed at Capitol Records.

All About Us

07.05.2006 - Tatu - tabloids are our style!
There's no secret that rumours and gossips has been following Tatu like no other artist. First, the girls didn't pay attention, then - they called many rumours for daylight lies and forbid tabloid's related info to be published on the official forum. Collaboration with the latter ones happens to be their latest trend now. Last week, Yulia and Lena gave an interview to a NTV reporter where they declared that tabloids were their style, their format. More over, they celebrated their new policy by puffing a hookah together with the Zhizn reporter.
Rumours about Yulia Volkova's affair with Vlad Topalov (former singer of the duo SMASH!!) appeared as hot news all over Russian press. Rumours didn't remain only rumours for a very long time. Yulia Volkova has officially declared her feeling for Vlad. Is it a PR or another love affair of the Tatu-girl - time will show.
As for rumours about possible wedding between Yulia and Vlad, we can assure you that the young people don't have any definite plans on it at the moment.
Please, visit Press section of our site for the press coverage of the event.

08.05.2006  - Tatu go movies
After Tatu had released their second album and toured across Europe with a promo, Tatu-girls decided not to waste any time while future possible gig contracts are signed - Lena and Yulia are about to take their chances playing a part in movies. Thus, a few days ago Yulia proudly said to the reporter of the St.Petersburg "Fontanka", "You'll see me on a big screen next year in one of the American blockbusters. I won't go into details now but the movie will rock."
While Yulia Volkova has all her hopes in Hollywood, her band mate Lena Katina received a proposal to play a part in a new film of Andery Kondratyev The Parisians-2. Producers are negotiating with Lena terms of the contract at the moment. As executive producer Leonid Dzunik says, "Lena has been dreaming of a part in a movie for a while now". The casting team was looking for a young woman with a genuine Slavic appearance and ginger Tatu-girl fits this role perfectly. What part will Lena play in the movie isn't revealed yet. It can happen that she'll make just an appearance. The film director Andery Kondratyev explained that the movie is thought as a romantic comedy about the life in the Russian village with a French name Paris. Except Lena Katina, famous French actor Gerard Depardieu is invited to play in this movie. Shooting is planned for June-August 2006 in the suburbs of Saratov (Russia).

The fact of cancellation has been known since August, 20 but the official statement was issued only today.

12.09.2006 - The concert tour of Tatu through Russia fails with scandals
The schedule of the tour "Dangerous & Moving" of the group Tatu through Russia will undergo serious changes. The appearances of Yulya Volkova and Lena Katina in the Far East have already been cancelled, the concerts planned in September are under threat too. This is related to the conflict between the manager of the group and the organizer of the tour - the company "Kreml Concert".
In the view of the company "Kreml Concert" the failure of the tour is completely the fault of the group Tatu. The first concert of the far-eastern part of the tour was planned for Yushno-Sakhalinsk on Aug, 24. The date of the gig coincided with the mournings in connection with the catastrophe of flight Tu-154 of "Pulkovskij Airline", which crashed over Donetsk the day before. This tragedy, emphasizes the press-release of the company, did not bother the manager of the group Leonid Shlyakhover to demand the money from "Kreml Concert" for the planned gig.
As an answer to the categorical disagreement with the concert organizer of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Nikolai Zhadanov, to fulfil this demand, the director of the group cancelled the whole far-eastern tour, and fixed the penalty for "Kreml Concert" at the amount of 20.000 euro. The organizers refused to transfer the money in advance for all of the following concerts of the tour, because they didn"t want to get into debt - according to their data the tickets for Tatu in the Russian cities were distributed with great set-backs.
"Even after the concert in Sochi the losses were 22.000 euro. In Samara the stadium was half empty, but strangely a large number of tickets was reported to be sold. Such a situation arose on the whole following route of the group." Moreover, "Kreml Concert" appeals to other organizers of concerts to take risks and organize a concert of the group Tatu in their city. "We proclaim a contest for the most broke organizer of concerts of the group Tatu. Mandatory condition for the contest - a photograph of Tatu infront of a half empty stadium. The prize of 1.000 euro will get, whose losses of the concert, unclaimed in Russia by the group, turned out to be the biggest." explained the press-release.
The management of Tatu has a completely opposite view of the prevalent situation. As the press-attache of the group Zhenya Voevodina told to the correspondent of Intermedia, the management terminated the contract, because "Kreml Concert" did not fulfil their financial obligations. "We cannot continue to cooperate with a partner, who breaks the contract." According to Voevodina the updated tour plan will be published very soon. Tatu have already reached an agreement with a new promoter who will take on the responsibility for the organization of the tour of the group through Russia."Luckily we found a company, who intends to sort out the mess, which was caused by the president of "Kreml concert" Sergej Lavrov." explained Zhenya Voevodina. The amount of concerts of the Tatu tour will be reduced, but not much, according to the prognosis of the press-attache.

17.09.2006 - Tatu will tour Ukraine
Group Tatu will visit Ukraine as a part of their Dangerous nad Moving Tour across Russia and former Soviet republics. The tour began this August.
The Ukrainian part of the tour is planned for October. The schedule includes Odessa (for October, 10, Kiev (October, 12), Dnepropetrovsk (October, 14), Kharkov (October, 17). The venues booked for the shows are of a respectable size - Sports Arenas.
A one and a half hour gig will include songs from Tatu's new album "Dangerous and Moving" (Ludi-Invalidi, All About Us, Friend Or Foe, Obezianka-Nol). Besides that the programme of the show will include Tatu's great old hits (All The Things She Said, Not Gonna Get Us, Ne Ver Ne Boisya Ne Prosi, Show Me Love). The live show will carry advanced light- and pyrotechnical effects.

18.09.2006 - Tatu won't participate at MTV RMA 2006 and will start their own record label
A press conference with Tatu took part at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Seoul, where Tatu are invited to perform at the Festival "Russian Nights in Seoul". The press conference was carried for Russian media only so the questions were of a specific character. The journalists were mainly interested in the business aspects of Tatu's – their relations with the group's former producer Ivan Shapovalov and breaking up with Universal Music International. The last question caused rather an emotional reaction of Yulia Volkova, who easily convinced the journalists that Universal had already made huge money on the group and "now it was the end of it". She said that now the group will work independently but "with the same management and with the same sponsor". To the question of the InterMedia reporter to tell the names of the persons, Yulia answered, "they are all known, so I won't tell". An additional detail of the relationship between the group and its partners was the announcement that the group has no intention to take part in the MTV Russian Music Awards 2006 in St. Petersburg: "We weren't asked to perform. We are not interested in sitting there as extras". It became clear that the nearest plan of the group is starting its own record label, which will manage all business of the group. As for the gig in Seoul, the Korean audience will see the same set of the gig as Tatu had already shown during the past months in Russia and abroad.

05.10.2006 - "Dangerous and Moving" tour dates changed again
In our post-soviet music industry organizing concerts, the ones that are big and live – is the hardest case. Tatu are doing their best to tour all major cities in Russia and Ukraine, where many thousands of our fans live.

Few world recognized artists are on tour in our country in many cities - cities other than Moscow and St. Petersburg. Tatu is the only exception, because it is the only internationally acknowledged pop-rock band from Russia. Even shows in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev are not organized smoothly. To name a couple recent ones, remember many venue changes of Madonna gig in Moscow, Roger Waters' show cancelled in Kiev… It's the promoter, not the artist, who holds responsibility for this. In smaller cities there are usually more troubles.

Do not forget that Tatu are not just Julia, Lena and musicians. It's also many people unseen for the audience, tons of things that a big live gig can't do without, a lot of difficult logistics that needs to be done on the highest level (do not believe the lies about full playback; those, who say them, do it either out of spite, or because they fail to hear live music – many hear it very rarely…) All the expensive sound systems we need can't always be transported to remote cities. Faery light at Tatu show, designed by Marc Brickman, Pink Floyd's light designer, needs advanced equipment that is also not available everywhere. Our show requires a costly and professionally run advertising campaign, substituted by some promoters with just several billboards on the skirts of the town (afterwards such promoters blame the artsist for the poor ticket sales).

All the above factors can't be fully controlled by the artist - or controlled at all.

Some will hardly believe it, but Tatu's Russian-Ukranian tour is absolutely not a question of money, but a question of respect towards fans and people coming to our shows, whose shining eyes we've seen on the previous tour shows and wait - at the coming ones. Probably, the easiest thing that could have been done is just a tour cancellation. The "torn" business card of the unprofessional promoter could have been the end of the story. But if Tatu does so, it will no longer be Tatu. Changes in dates and cities is the result of the changing and hard-to-predict circumstances that accompany tour organization in the "zone of risky agriculture" (read: the entertainment industry). Even now, when we've changed tour dates for the third time, we are not sure if it's final.
We are risking Tatu's reputation, but we really want to come to your cities, guys. Please, check the tour schedule at official site. It is 100% confirmed information. And don't believe rumors and lies.

10.10.2006 - One of the major MTV Awards of Tatu's is out for sale on eBay
On September, 2001 Tatu received an award at MTV Video Music Awards in the nomination Viewers Choice - Best Russian Video at Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. They won this award for their video Ya Soshla S Uma (Russian version of their very first hit All The Things She Said).
Later on the statue "Moonman" was stolen from the office of Tatu's former producer Ivan Shapovalov. The statue has been circulating for sale in Moscow for some time at a price of $1000. Tatu's management was aware of this fact but somehow didn't consider any actions in order to bring the award back where it belongs.
Now, "Moonman" popped up at the American on-line market eBay. The bidding price is $5300. To the question, "Why is it so expensive", the anonymous seller said that in reality this award is priceless.

21.11.2006 - Russian disabled people sue pop idols Tatu over song title
An ombudsman in Russia's northern province of Komi is set to sue the pop group Tatu as he seeks compensation for damage allegedly inflicted on the disabled by the duo who have titled one of their songs "Lyudi Invalidy" or "Invalid People".
According to a report by the KomiOnline web site the move had been initiated by the Disabled People Society from the Komi capital city Syktyvkar. Representatives of the society hold that the song title can be construed as a public insult from both the pop group members and their producer.
The ombudsman said the defendants could also face criminal charges for libel. But even if the court refuses to uphold libel charges against Tatu the singers will have to compensate society for moral damages, he said.

29.11.2006 - Disabled vs Tatu - the story goes on
In the light of the latest charges pressed by disabled Russian people against group Tatu, its management released on official site the following statement:
"We've been waiting for this for more than a year, and it has finally happened... Ludi invalidi reacted to our call and made us be sure they exist. Now people can see a fine-quality living illustration to our metaphor and learn about the reflexes of real Ludi invalidi. Hey, you skeptics, who kept telling us that album's concept was far-fetched and "out of thin air" - don't miss the show called "Ludi invalidi vs Tatu" We are drawing the fire upon ourselves - and doing it for you, people.
This is what we call "the power of art".
Let Ludi invalidi mess with flies and hamburgers. We prefer to separate the husk from the grain."

03.12.3006 - Fun People Interview

05.12.2006 - Concert in Prado Cafe, Moscow

The popular band Tatu tried their best to amaze the fans on their latest show.
Late at night, December 5th the Tatugirls performed on the birthday party of the famous fancy restaurant on the center of Moscow. After the guests filled the place from wall to wall, the girls, who's concert was awaited by everybody showed up to the public.
The Tatugirls needed a great effort to get to the stage, even with company of their guards that lead them through the partying friends of the place. Besides, the covered by black coats girls were hard to recognize. Yulia and Lena took off the coats only on the stage, which probably were needed to make them look mysterious.
Yulia, who got used to shocking the public looked properly for this cause: Bright red corset, stockings in a grid and almost non-existed skirt, that could be easily taken as a belt. During the performance the girl jumped up, and the skirt was rising to reveal the girls black underwear.
Lena, as usual, looked much more modest than her friend. The girl wore jeans and top.
Tatu performed only 5 songs. During this mini-concert they didn't forget their lesbian legend that already became old. The girls kept hugging all the concert, and even shared one shy kiss. The kiss lasted less than a second.
While leaving the stage, the girls showed once again that they don't have complexes. Yulia and Lena took off their high heels that they jumped on during half an hour. Lena walked barefoot on the dirty floor to the restroom, and Yulia was carried away by one of the guards.
