Tom Jones Performs in North Cyprus

The Kibris newspaper dedicated a page to the performance by Tom Jones at the Rocks Hotel in Kyrenia on Sunday. He reportedly arrived in the north in a private jet from Turkey and then returned to give a concert in Istanbul. The Kyrenia concert was listed as a private party and seems to have avoided the type of publicity which persuaded Jenifer Lopez and Julio Iglesias not to do the same.

Greek singer Angela Dimitriou seems not to be able to make up her mind whether she is performing in the north, as is Ziynet Sali, a British Cypriot singer born to Turkish Cypriot parents. For some reason, some Greek Cypriots expend more energy in preventing such events than they do in reaching a settlement. If it seems spiteful then perhaps it is.
