Tarkan Russian Concerts Selling Out Fast
|Tarkan's three-stop tour of Russia's major cities are part of his Turkish citrus fruit campaign in the country|
With a Russian language website opened for the upcoming shows, the Turkish article writes that after a summer season of concerts in Turkey, Tarkan is now getting ready to greet Russian fans with songs "from his latest album" - 2007's Metamorfoz. It says that interest for his Russian shows "are high".
His first concert - and his first ever appearance in the city - will be in Yekaterinburg on 18 November, with the account reporting that tickets are nearly sold out. Tickets are priced between 20-125 dollars.
Two more shows will follow in Saint Petersburg and the Russian capital of Moscow, on 20 and 21 November respectively.
Part of a new campaign as the face of fresh citrus products exported from Turkey to Russia for the Citrus Promotion Group, three commercials filmed by Turkish director Ezel Akay have begun to air on major Russian stations a week before Tarkan's first show is set to open.
