"PJ Harvey, one of the most iconic musicians of our time, will return to İstanbul for another inspirational performance at Zorlu Performing Arts Center."

Supporting Act: "Low" (as well as in the future Berlin gig).

Looks like a big solo show.

From Wikipedia: "It is Europe's largest and world's third largest performing arts venue."

I was waiting for a solo show to travel Europe from Istanbul, and now my dream comes true and I have been in this venue before. It is very nice!

"It is Europe's largest and world's third largest performing arts venue."

main theatre seating capacity 2,262 - not so very large; but perhaps it's the total size of the venue that is "largest".

here's a seating map:

the ticket sale has now begun:
http://www.biletix.com/biletsec/TKPJH/ISTANBUL/en

and it appears that the audience will be standing, in the area closest to the stage. at least this is apparent by the ticketing system presenting a block titled AYAKTA, which means "standing" in Turkish (unless Google Translate would be wrong).

Yes, AYAKTA means standing. In front of the stage there is standing area and other parts with seat. I got my ticket closest seating area to the stage because standing will be long and exhausting considering pre-group Low. Also Tindersticks, Sigur Ros and M83 will have concert there in May and June.

Something tells me they won't be sight-seeing in Turkey much before heading back for Friday's gig in Portugal.

No, I was there and they indeed played it. Had to start the song again because she (?) messed up the beginning singing at the wrong time - that was a little cute moment haha. Sad she didnt do Elise or WFTM though. Both Ministry songs are huge live and River Anacostia was so much better than the studio version which is a bit dull, imo. A Line In The Sand however seemed to lack the dynamism of the studio version probably because of the drumming - shame because its my favorite on the record! So yeah just a mini review..The setlist is correct!!

I heard there recently were two terrorist attacks in Turkey within 24 hours. It happens almost every month (if not week).

They played it at the encore at the very first show in Toulouse.

I noticed that too (from the videos, of course). I think it's way too early for me to judge before we see some pro-shot footage, but I think what one Jean-Marc Butty (or Kenrick Rowe) behind the "LES"-tour drum station would be much more effective.

Jean-Marc is such a fantastic drummer, but now he just stands throughout the whole show with these marching drums.
