According to Turkish Digest Elton John has a legion of fans in Turkey thus the focus in big letters on his impending performance in Istanbul and the reference is also referring to Elton John's song "Candle in te Wind" a tribute to the late Princess Diana, Princess of Wales, which was a best seller for Elton John since that point in time. Along with the news of Elton John's return and his impending performance in Istanbul, is the famous artist Amy Winehouse who will also be performing in Istanbul soon. Winehouse is much discussed on the BBC and she is a legendary Pop Star according to most of the DJs.
