2010 Harbiye Open Air Shows
After Tarkan's music company HITT confirmed via its official site last month its 6th annual open air summer gig at the Harbiye in Istanbul, it has now updated its original press release to add the previously reported new dates.
The press release writes that Istanbul's Harbiye will once more rock in the open air with select artists, kick-starting with two shows from Tarkan, scheduled for 31 July and 1 August.
Online Turkish ticket company Biletix recently opened up sale for tickets to Tarkan's 1 August show, following the rumoured high demand for seats.
HITT has been organising annual open air summer concerts at Istanbul's Harbiye for six years, and Tarkan appeared at the 2nd, 4th and 5th summer gigs, under the sponsorship of telecommunications company Avea in previous years.
Other Attending Artists
Set up in conjunction with Turkish music station Kral this year, other artists performing at the venue will be Demet Akalın, Sertab Erener, Serdar Ortaç, Volkan Konak, Zülfü Livaneli and Mustafa Ceceli with guests, with Ortaç signed up for two shows at the annual summer gig.
It had previously been reported that Tarkan would be appearing at the event alongside Ortaç, Ajda Pekkan and Sibel Can, although only Ortaç has been listed amongst the "big four" to take part in HITT's Harbiye open air shows this year.
UPDATE: However, Pekkan did appear as a special guest on Ceceli's Harbiye show.
