Details shared via Twitter by the audience report that Tarkan performed two acoustic sets, one of which was accompanied by piano and cello, and he dressed in black for the show, more sombrely than previous years.
Meanwhile, the musical megastar's merrymakers took to the social media to share their memories of the evening. First images shared by admiring attendees reveal the iconic pop star has not disappointed with his usual live performance and special visual stage effects.
Amongst those sharing their experiences online were newbie film director Furkan Bayraktar and freelance photographer Taha Karaoğlu, both with a press pass, while celebrity reporter for Star TV's "Süper Starlife" Uğur Çetin was in the audience, as was programme producer for Show TV, Metin Karaaslan.

The audience was lit up in a sea of smartphones as per usual, with some impromptu impresarios even sharing the concert live via the phone app Facetime, so fans unable to find tickets for the show could watch their favourite artist sing live.
