Tarkan May Show Update
As the Turkish media hails Tarkan's Green Palace peformance a success, readers have emailed the blog to emphasise that other fans, and not just Russian tourists, were at the special May show. Even though the majority of the hotel guests were Russian, holidaymakers from different parts of Europe also came to Antalya this May to watch Tarkan in a special free concert.
One girl from Zurich, Switzerland, (in Antalya for personal reasons) blogged about the event, and shared a few of her own pictures from that evening. On her blog Maja in the Big World, which follows her experiences in Antalya, she states,
I already knew this man was class...but he exceeded all my expectations. The beach concert was filled with oriental grooves, a large crowd, fireworks and moves to shame Shakira. I nearly gave in to scream along with the young girls in the front row.
Hoping to boost spring tourism the hotel in question had offered free admission to a special Tarkan show for guests.
From Antalya to Istanbul
Female journalist İlke Gürman managed to catch up with Tarkan on his return from Antalya at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul. The artist answered questions about his career and love life, and the new album that's in production*.
Fans now eagerly await his much anticipated Turkish language album, scheduled to be released this summer.
