Your chance to see the Russian lesbo-pop duo for nowt - but you better be quick...

TATU have dramatically cancelled their upcoming UK shows after dismal ticket sales.

The controversial Russian lesbian duo were scheduled to play Wembley Arena on May 2 and 6, and Manchester Evening News Arena on May 4.

A spokesperson for Tatu blasted promoters saying they were to blame for the poor ticket sales.


“No one books two dates at Wembley Arena on the back of one single, it was ambitious on the part of the promoters,” he said. ” It is impossible to sell out Wembley Arena in a short period of time, most bands like Blue and Atomic Kitten announce shows 10 months in advance.”

However, NME can today (April 30) give you the chance to see Tatu this weekend.

The band will record a performance for ‘CD:UK’ this Saturday (May 3). The hour-long performance runs from 3 – 4pm in Waterloo.

The pair, Julia Volkova and Lena Katina, are set to release their second single ‘Not Gonna Get Us’ on May 19.

They are also due to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest on May 24, performing the song ‘Ne Ver, Ne Bojsia’, which means ‘Do Not Be Afraid, Do Not Despair’.
