Rendezvous with world stars

The Turkcell Kuruçeşme Arena this summer is again going to be a meeting place for the giants of world music when a number of famous names are coming to Turkey in a cooperation between BKM and Radyo Eksen.

Giving the 62nd concert of his 2008 tour in Istanbul, legendary rock star Mark Knopfler, founder of Dire Straits, takes the stage on 13 June, followed by Judas Priest, who will rendezvous with heavy metal buffs with his new album ‘Nostradamus’ on 13 July; Lenny Kravitz, on tour with his latest album, on 30 July as part of the 15th International Istanbul Jazz Festival; and singer and cinema actor Björk on 3 August at the Kuruçeşme Arena.
