tarkan.com has returned with a new face, an English section, a new flash design, a brand new biography by Avo Yermagyan (an American publicist who has worked with Tarkan before for different articles) and Sevgi Sanli, discography section and of course video and photo galleries. But, most important, tarkan.com features now a T-zone intended for fans, and a mention on the bottom of the page of the official fanclubs, facebook, twitter and myspace pages.

Last night the opening concert of the Harbiye series took place. Tarkan presented his album, Adimi Kalbine Yaz (Step into the heart of summer) to an audience of 6500. Although the theater has only 5000 seats, and all the tickets were sold to the last one, the organisers decideed to give tickets also for the extra space, that is the stairs of the theater.
Hurriyet writes that the concert was outstanding and that for the concert of tonight also all tickets were sold.
Also, Hurriyet notes that fans held us a banner saying: "Tarkan, you've captured us! We've written your name across our hearts!"This was the banner of our colleague club, Tarkanclub, also part of TarkanInternational! :)
As per the above mentioned paper, Adimi Kalbine Yaz from the album with the same name is certainly the most popular song at the moment.
