Appearing as the finale act late in the evening for Istanbul's largest university festival, although the artist suffered some sound technical difficulties during the opening song "Vay Anam Vay", the performer still managed to blow the capacity audience away with live renditions of past and latest classic hits.

Tarkan for Private Global Function

Turkish newspaper Sabah reports that Tarkan will be performing at a private function for the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in early June at a spectacular venue.
