In an effort to help promote digital music and support the Turkish music industry, the mobile phone will come loaded with 100 songs from 18 Turkish singers, including Tarkan. This domestic campaign has also been reported by the CNET Türkiye website.

Wembley Set to Dazzle

Tarkan set to shake Wembley ArenaRumours surrounding Tarkan's scheduled live performance at London's Wembley Arena, on Sunday 13 April 2008, indicate that it will be a huge display of moving platforms, lights and special effects costing over 300 thousand euros.

The show will be the star's first international outing since the release of Metamorfoz and will showcase songs from the latest album.

Tarkan's last concert in the city was in March 1999 at Alexandra Palace, while before that the pop icon had performed at the London Hippodrome in December 1997.
