No Rome Concert for Barbra Streisand



It could be due to recent protest on her high ticket price but Barbra Streisand's concert organizer said that they encounter some 'other problem'.

Not enough preparation time for the kick off show, Barbra Streisand has to scrap off the date in Rome. This has been confirmed by the tour's organizer to have nothing to do with the recent the Italians' protest regarding the extravagant ticket price.

"We met with unexpected production delays," tour promoter Michael Cohl wrote on the web of Milano Concerti, the Italian organizer of the event. "We deeply apologize to the fans in Rome." Purchased tickets that were criticized to have unreasonable price will be available for refund or can be exchanged for her other European show.

With the cancellation, the tour will not kick off June 15 at Stadio Flamino as scheduled but it is due to begin again June 18 in Zurich, Switzerland before continuing with the June 21 date in Vienna, Austria

As previously reported, the tickets price which cost 200 to 900 euros is considered 'absurd and 'shameful'. Codacons spokesman Stefano Zerbi said on Wednesday, "Organizers of the Streisand concert are charging more than three times what other big stars like The Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake are doing. This is unfair towards the young and the less well off."

This Codacons act is mainly provoked by angry fans who feel that the venue is not worth the performance. "We wouldn't have a problem if the concert was taking place in a private building." Zerbi continued. "But because the stadium is a publicly-owned structure, the city's officials are acting as accomplices to this form of discrimination."
