Istanbul will welcome a range of global music stars this month, with visits scheduled from artists who run the gamut from pop to metal to classical, as daily Hurriyet reports. On November 10 the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra will be on stage at Halic Congress Center, followed a day later by Thin Lizzy at Kucukciftlik Park as part of the Avea Music Concert. W.A.S.P. continues the lineup at Macka Kukukciftlik Park on November 25, while Sting will conclude the month of music with his long-awaited concert at Atakoy Track and Field Hall. Jennifer Lopez will perform at Ulker Sports Arena on November 16 and has also agreed to a November 17 encore performance following her highly anticipated initial show, according to concert organizers. A total of 5,000 tickets for the upcoming Lopez concert were sold out within the first five days they were available. Lopez will sing new songs from her latest album, \'Love.\' Given her reputation for high-energy stage shows, expectations are high, though it remains uncertain whether Enrique Iglesias, who has been performing with Lopez on her \'Dance Again\' world tour, will be accompanying her. The Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV) will be hosting one of the world\'s greatest orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, on November 10 at the Halic Congress Center as part of the 400th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Turkey and the Netherlands.
