Chris de Burgh comes to Istanbul
ISTANBULBritish-Irish singer Chris de Burgh will perform at Istanbul’s Ülker Sports Arena on Feb. 28.
Most known for his 1986 love song “Lady in Red,” De Burgh has sold over 45 million albums worldwide. The song became a number one hit in the U.K. and its accompanying album, “Into the Light,” reached number two in the U.K.
In 2007, a concert in Tehran was planned for mid-2008, together with local band Arian, which would have made de Burgh the first western pop singer to perform in Iran since the 1979 revolution. However, the concert never went ahead because he had not been given permission by the Iranian authorities to perform in the country.
Tickets for his Istanbul concert are available at Biletix.
