Tarkan's Concert Calendar Summer Updates

Tarkan's concert calendar has been updated to include venues for a month-long Doritos sponsored concert tour. Plans are for Tarkan to give nine concerts in nine regions in one month, starting from Bursa and ending in Istanbul.

The soft snacks giant is running a promotion where Tarkan concert tickets for the summer marathon can be won in return for collecting points from their products. The campaign will last from 12 May to 27 July, before the tour kicks off on the first day of August.

In addition, journalist Ali Eyüboğlu, writing for Turkish paper Milliyet, has printed that Tarkan and Doritos representatives will be giving a press conference about the promotional concerts tomorrow evening.

Under the banner, "Wherever there's Doritos, there's music!" the artist and the snack giant will come together on 15 May at the Discorium club in Istanbul to publicise the event, where it is reported that Tarkan will sing three songs.

Ten points from relevant food packets will get consumers in to see Tarkan perform live. Tickets are subject to availability. Further information on ticket sale points will be carried by Doritos' official website, or alternatively those interested can call (Istanbul) 0090 (0) 216 554 66 44.

This is Tarkan's second time in teaming up with Doritos. The artist had run a similar campaign for his 1995 string of national concerts with his A-acayipsin album.
