Fan reports from Alexander Rybak’s Meet & Greet in Istanbul, Turkey.
“I’ve decided to meet y’all and say hello and give you a hug” – Alexander Rybak
On 10th August 2017, Alexander delighted his European fans by the sudden announcement he would be arranging three meet and greets in the next week since he was having business meetings and studio sessions in Europe.
The first one was in Turkey on 13th August where he made the bold promise:
“I will be hugging each and every one who comes tomorrow to the beautiful roof of Mr.Cas Hotel on Istiklal Street, Istanbul at 8pm”. – Alexander Rybak
The event was well attended and judging by the reactions and photos posted on Instagram I think he actually managed to keep that promise.
Now we’d like to share with you some of those stories and photos from a few of the fans who were present…
Alexander finally visited beautiful Istanbul to play a full concert there! On September 17th he and the dancers from Lithuanian dance group “Time to show” performed at the night club “Jolly Joker”. Earlier that day Alexander met his fans at the open “Meet and Greet”.
Here are pictures from these events gathered in the photo-gallery.
