Turkey was a much sought-after holiday destination over the summer
(PRWeb UK) September 2, 2010
Legendary rockers U2 bring the second leg of their sold-out 360° tour to Istanbul for one night only this September. Taking place at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium on the evening of the 6 September and featuring fellow Irish group Snow Patrol, this concert promises to attract more tourists to an already popular destination for cheap holidays.
“Turkey was a much sought-after holiday destination over the summer,” says Alex Saint, Managing Director of leading holiday portal dealchecker.co.uk. “It’s a warm, welcoming and eclectic destination for many holidaymakers with a range of sunny beaches and architectural treasures. We usually see the demand for holidays decrease near the end of August, with the end of the holidays and people returning to work or school. But this year we’ve seen a sudden rise in requests for flights to Turkey as the concert draws closer.”
The September concert will feature all of the band’s greatest hits, as well as some newer material from their latest album, No Line on the Horizon. Currently being hailed as the largest live music gig ever to be performed in Turkey, the concert will also mark the first time the band have played in the country, a feat that will bring more attention to Turkey as a prime holiday destination.
“Turkey has traditionally been a haven for anyone looking for an inexpensive break in the Mediterranean,” says Saint. “But over the last few years Turkey has been transformed into one of the most desirable travel destinations, with places like Dalaman, Bodrum and Marmaris appealing to tourists of all ages and interests. And we anticipate that we’ll get a few more requests for last minute Turkey holidays in the next few days as music fans try to organise their holidays around the concert.”
