Tarkan's Concert Calendar (Cancellations)

Tarkan had a knee operation in 2003, which had also delayed concerts in 2005Tarkan's Live in Germany series of concerts have suffered massive cancellations due to what his PR team cite as a recurring knee problem, but what other sources claim to be due to a lack of ticket sales.

Tarkan underwent minor knee surgery in 2003, a problem that had also delayed concerts in 2005.

With only two dates in Germany now remaining, suspicion regarding a low turnout include indicating factors from other European venues.

Even though official sources claim the move of all concerts due to mobility problems, the Paris concert seems to have been re-allocated months before mention of a physical incapacity. The official Bercy Hall site has never made mention of a Tarkan concert in Paris for 2006, while as early as the start of this month some Turkish news sites reported a 2007 date for Paris.

And when reporters had asked Tarkan whether recent events in France passing a law adverse to Turkish policy would affect his French outing, the singer had stressed that the concert would go ahead, but had been careful not to mention a date.

However with prices starting from 50 euros upwards, there were estimations that the cancelled Berlin concert had sold all of its available tickets.

One thing is clear - Tarkan fans will be very disappointed by this news, which can only be seen as a huge setback in Tarkan's flagging campaign for further success in Europe.

With only three European venues for 2006, all others have been allocated to 2007.

Tarkan's concert calendar now provisionally includes:
