Tarkan Cyprus Concert Update

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

There are updates in from official sources about reports on Tarkan's concert on 3 October in the northern Turkish territories of the island of Cyprus.

Screencap of reportIn an article dated 26 September, northern Cypriot paper KIBRIS has spoken to HITT representative and one of Tarkan's managers Ali Korur, along with production manager Can Besbelli, over details of the stadium show for which tickets are selling out fast (see left pic).

Revealing that this was Tarkan's third show on the island - but his first stadium-sized event - Korur commented on the importance of the night's festivities, and the high standard of professionalism involved by all parties to make sure the concert went without a hitch.

Set to give an explosive show at the stadium where Tarkan Deluxe founder Ali Yildirim played a charity football game for local cancer sufferers in 2008, all proceeds from Tarkan's 2009 performance will be donated to a local children's cancer charity.

With Tarkan's concert convoy of five lorries set to arrive on the island on 1 October, and work going on to ensure that the field and track would be protected during the evening, "We expect to see everyone at this once in a lifetime event," Korur said.

Tarkan had last appeared in Cyprus for two concerts in Kyrenia in 2008 and in 2006.
