t.A.T.u. in Hong Kong. This is the first time for these Russian ladies to come to Asia, and most specifically to Hong Kong. Not like Westlife, t.A.T.u. were only here for mostly the concert, not for the media, but them being so controversy has kept them on the press, pretty much, everyday!
This was the only show of the Harbour Fest which was a full house! Everyone had their free-ticket on hand, expecting a family time at Tamar Site. Twins did a pretty good job at that, but then, we started to worry, how would the 6-year-olds feel when they see two lesbians kissing??
Starting with their worldwide number one single âAll The Things She Saidâ, t.A.T.u. came out with their simple outfit, white top, jeans, looking casual. After just a couple of songs, âHow Soon Is Nowâ and âShow Me Loveâ, Julia brought it up with her Russian accent, âOk Ok, weâre going to doâ¦ the KISS!â Both her and Lena had their camera, while the big screen shows what they see from the cameras. Asking the crowd toe kiss before they do, it took a bit too long for Hong Kong to get as crazy as they are, then it became a little cheesyâ¦ After all, they kissed, twice!
Performing songs from â200km/hr On The Wrong Laneâ such as âMalchik Gayâ, âClownsâ and â30 minutesâ, itâs a surprise to see the girls singing live, since their pitch were so high that it was almost impossible to reach!
Closing the original set with the splendid âNot Gonna Get Usâ, t.A.T.u. took the crowd to their remix set. Switching âNot Gonna Get Usâ to the trancy mix, followed by a reggae version of âAll The Things She Saidâ, you can tell that, yeah, everybody loves dance music, even families here in town! If the CD didnât jump, it would have been a perfect show. But overall, it was quite a wild night for Hong Kong, and a success for Harbour Fest.
