Tarkan Runs Up A Sweat
Picking up the news lead run by Saffet Yenigün for the Doğan News Agency (DHA), the magazine supplement byline claims that Tarkan sweated so much during his performance that he had to remove the suit he had worn on stage.
Tarkan entertained financiers from Turkey's İŞ Bank at Antalya's Sungate Port Royal Hotel to mark the end of a business conference. Alongside his latest songs, Tarkan reportedly sang Turkish classical pieces, too. He was called for an encore, and sang three more songs, before exiting the stage.
Although the artist travelled to Antalya with girlfriend Bilge Öztürk, the article claims she did not attend the concert. Photographs provided by the hotel show Tarkan's girlfriend standing by the singer as in speaks to TV reporters on his arrival to the region.
İŞ Bank is Turkey's first public bank and premier national financial institution, ranked 102nd in the "Top 1000 World Banks" survey of Financial Times' The Banker and 375th in the Forbes Global 2000 lists as of 2007.
