Sertab Erener Tickets
Sertab Erener, the Turkish pop music queen
Sertab Erener has won the hearts of Turkish pop-rock fans many times over since her first release in 1992. She's a singer-songwriter who is classically trained as a soprano, and this influence has stayed with her throughout her career. Her music, though clearly of the pop variety, has always had a recognisable vein of classical Turkish music running through it, if you know what to look for. Fans of this multi-talented star can buy or sell Sertab Erener tickets on StubHub.
Eurovision success followed by national fame
Sertab Erener took a tried and trusted route to her initial brush with national fame, when she made her first attempt to become Turkey's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest. Along with a popular band at the time, Klips ve Onlar, she made a bid with the middle of the road pop number, "Haret". Unfortunately, they failed to make the finals, and it was a similar story when she tried again in 1990. But in 2003 she made a stunning return to the competition with what was to become a massive hit for her, "Everyway That I Can". With this song, she not only won the right to represent her country in the competition, she won the whole thing outright! Her second Eurovision attempt wasn't without success, however, as she met her first husband, Levent Yuksel, who was to become one of her most important musical collaborators throughout her long and illustrious music career that was to follow. Now one of Turkey's most revered pop artists, she still performs live throughout the year, and Sertab Erener tickets are almost automatic purchases for Istanbul residents in particular.
English rock music with Oceans of Noise
Sertab Erener went on to a career that was nothing less than stellar. She has received the Turkish State Medal of Distinguished Service and she's won plenty of the most important Turkish music awards, including two Golden Butterflies, as well as several Kral TV Video Music Awards. Although she plies her trade in the pop genre, she brings several of her favourite influences to her songs, particularly her classical background, and also her love for generally Middle Eastern rhythms and melodies. Over the years she has tended more towards a mellower classical vibe, and has performed live with a range of international vocal maestros, including some of her most memorable shows with Jose Carreras. She's always sung in her native language, but relatively late in her career she decided to have a go at the European English language pop market. Forming a band for this specific purpose, she released an EP under the name of Oceans of Noise. It's been one musical achievement after the next for this versatile artist, and it is testament to her enduring success that Sertab Erener tickets remain in high demand on StubHub.
