Tarkan’s fifth concert at Harbiye Theatre took place yesterday, coinciding with the Turkish National Day of Independence. The open-air theatre was packed with people despite the fact that Tarkan had previously given four concerts at the same venue in less than a month.
Yesterday’s concert was amazing as usual. Tarkan’s vocal strength, his persona on the stage, the way he ‘touched’ his audience, his energy, his aura and his songs all made August 30, 2010 a special day for Tarkan fans. It was amazing to see how everybody, young and old alike, knew the lyrics by heart; everybody sang along; everybody danced along and joined the flow. The audience was clearly impressed by Tarkan. And so was Tarkan by his audience, bowing and thanking them many times.
Tarkan also sang many songs from his past albums. While he was singing “Unutmamalı”, thousands of people accompanied him, an unforgettable moment both for the artist himself and the audience.
At the end of the concert, it was no surprise that the audience would not leave the theatre, asking for more Tarkan songs. Then he suddenly called behind the stage curtains asking “Do you want me to come back? OK I am… “ And …. the second time teasing his audience, “Wait, wait, where are you going? Is it bedtime for you already? Not for me.” He appeared again on the stage and conquered the hearts of his fans yet again!
If you missed his previous concerts, enjoy Tarkan on stage tonight or on September 4th for an additional concert at the same venue.
