Following the announcement that t.A.T.u. will reunite on stage on September 3rd, 2022 in Minsk, Belarus, fans have expressed a great amount excitement. The show, which is centered around an MMA tournament, will feature Julia Volkova and Lena Katina as headliners and will take place at the Dinamo Stadium, hosted by Ovion.
There is plenty of speculation about what t.A.T.u. fans can expect from the duo during the show. Elena Davidovich, the co-organizer of the event, appeared on “Weekly Roundup” and had this to say about t.A.T.u.’s performance: “Unfortunately we cannot reveal all the secrets, but we can say for certain that Lena Katina’s and Julia Volkova’s performance at the Dinamo Stadium will surprise even the most devoted fans of their work. It is worth noting that the last time the girls performed together was in 2014. After 8 years they are going to perform together on the same stage and you may notice that exactly 21 years ago it was the first and last time they performed at the Dinamo Stadium. We have things to be surprised by. One secret I can share is that the Dinamo Stadium will have a real blimp, so we are ready to create surprises.”
The organizers of the show also shared the following information in article from Relax.by:
Perhaps we can reveal now how many songs are waiting for t.A.T.u. fans at the concert in Minsk?
Unfortunately, we cannot tell you this, but we assure that the fans will be able to enjoy their favorite songs and the girls themselves in full.
How did you come up with the idea to combine two seemingly completely polar spheres – music and sports, particularly a fight?
It all started with t.A.T.u. We saw a video from 2001 of the girls driving into the stadium on a huge car, and then singing on the roof of a limousine. The Dinamo Stadium rejoiced! We wanted to do something as big and interesting. And we decided that we would combine music with sports, show that these are, albeit different realities, but the realities of one world that can intersect. Moreover, the ideas and plans were already hatched separately – a tournament and a big concert.
