Official Sources Contact Tarkan Deluxe

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Update at Tarkan's official site
The message posted at Tarkan.com yesterday
Over the past few days Tarkan Deluxe has been reporting to readers about the cancellation of his live performance in Belgium, and the angry reaction fans have shown towards the last minute change to the December leg of his 2008 Metamorfoz European Tour.

Yesterday, Tarkan Deluxe posted that the artist's official site had posted what seemed to be an ambiguous explanation over the upset, which looks set to overshadow the success of the 2008 tour of concerts.

Today, official sources have contacted the blog to explain the reason for the Belgian show's cancellation, and the meaning behind the ambiguous message at Tarkan.com.

The official tour deejay for Tarkan's European leg of his Metamorfoz concert series, DJ Alem, has written in to explain to disappointed fans that a problem arose with the local Belgian promoter Aja concerts.

"[The official organiser] Redwhite Events sells the concerts to local promoters. For Brussels Aja won the contract. The deadline to pay the rest of the monies was at least three days before the concert. Aja concerts didn't pay the money, so the show was cancelled," the email explained.

Meanwhile, in regard to the ambiguous message hosted up at Tarkan.com, it seems that members of Tarkan's official team are in contradiction with one another, and that the message's own unclear wording has helped to raise confusion.

Before going to press with yesterday's story Tarkan Deluxe had received a collaborating email from an official source claiming that the new message was the Turkish pop star's way of explanation over the Belgian show's cancellation, however other official and non-official sources have contacted the blog to correct yesterday's post.

It appears that the message was in fact concerning a political petition on the Net, where someone falsely put down Tarkan's name as one of the celebrities in favour of the petition's message, and that the artist was disputing the existence of his signature as he was away in Europe on tour.
