Barbra Streisand gives rare opportunities for her Continental European fans to enjoy her first concert there and UK fans the first gig in 13 years.
Thirteen years absence from UK stage is enough to make Barbra Streisand a highly anticipated artist in the continent. The singer will answer the demand when she embarks on European tour beginning June 21.
Making Vienna, Austria the first stop, this leg of tour will also visit Ireland, France, and UK. "What a joy it will be to perform in so many wonderful countries for the first time," said Streisand. "I can't wait to experience these different audiences and different cultures."
In the concert that also marks her very first live performance in Continental Europe, Streisand will bring along a 58-piece orchestra. The ensemble will assist the singer in her classics such as "Evergreen", "People", "The Way We Were" and "Don't Rain on My Parade".
Streisand's tours that always hold the record of box office gainer will begin selling this European jaunt's tickets on May 5. The performer will charge up to £500 per ticket with the cheapest seats available for £100. Like the previous successful tours, parts of the ticket sale will benefit The Streisand Foundation and other charity body.
