Tarkan in Izmir for Car Fest

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan in Izmir for Otokolik Fest 09Tarkan was in Izmir on Sunday to appear live for Star TV's Otokolik Fest '09.

Taking to the stage at the Autodrom race track situated in Pınarbaşı, a town near Izmir, on the 21 June, initial reports from news agencies report that Tarkan sported a new haircut and chose to appear in white for the occasion.

However, even though it was a specialist festival for car lovers, and the tickets were expensive, the news agencies in general chose to run with the headline that the attendance was low for a usual Tarkan concert.

The press reports write that a turnout of 1,500 for the close of the festival was a disappointment for the star, who usually gathers at least 5,000 for his live shows.

Noting that the star had a large fan base, but which had apparently decided to stay away from the car festival, the reports claim that Tarkan did not show his disappointment.

"It's been a long time since I came to Izmir. I've even missed its scent, let's just us have a great evening together," he is reported to have said to the crowd.
