Barbra Streisand Tickets for Sale
Barbra Streisand's last big outing came two years ago. Then, she embarked on a national tour to her millions of fans delight. Well, in the two years since she has released the album What Matters Most and she recently scheduled a pair of dates to the new Brooklyn venue, the Barclay Center. Barbra Streisand tickets are on sale now only at secondary ticket brokers like OnlineSeats because both shows sold out almost as soon as they were announced and the seats were released.
This has to be only the beginning right? You are correct. Perez Hilton reports she is signing with Sony for a deal worth $30 million. The move is reminiscent of the plotting that brought Tony Bennett back into the public consciousness. She is expected to record an album of duets, featuring the hip hop and R&B stars of the new generation. This includes Adel and Rihanna.
Noted for her strong, clear soprano voice and her dynamic presence, Barbra Streisand has made numerous popular recordings. Regardless of an amazing singing voice that has enchanted practically anyone who has heard it, she has always used singing as a sheer stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director. Streisand first gained critical and public acclaim in 1962 for her supporting role in the Broadway musical I Can Get It for You Wholesale. In another musical, Funny Girl, she sealed her fame with her show-stopping portrayal of Fanny Brice in 1964. Signed to Columbia Records, she released her first album, The Barbra Streisand Album, in 1963. It became a Top Ten, gold-selling record, turning Streisand into one of the best-selling recording artists of the early '60s.
Streisand went to Hollywood to film Funny Girl in 1967, for which she would win an Academy Award for. But by 1970, with her second and third films flops and her recording career declining in the face of rock, she seemed consigned to Las Vegas before turning 30. Instead, she returned to hit-making with a Top Ten cover of Laura Nyro's "Stoney End" and a triumphant non-singing performance in the comedy The Owl and the Pussycat.
Every album she released that decade sold at least a million copies, and in the late '70s, she found recording success when she collaborated on a duet with Neil Diamond, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," that hit number one. A dance record sung with Donna Summer, "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," hit number one as well. Her biggest selling album in 1980 was with Guilty, which was written and produced by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees and contained the number one hit "Woman in Love." In 1991, she released Just for the Record..., a boxed set showcase, and her second film as a director, The Prince of Tides. Streisand came back to the concert stage in 1994, which resulted in the Top Ten, million selling album The Concert. In 1996, she directed her third film, The Mirror Has Two Faces; and in 1999 she released A Love Like Ours.Streisand seemed to have disappeared from the public's eye at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century. However, she hinted that things were not quite finished for her after turning down a $100 million offer from Caesars Palace to begin a three-year residency at the Colosseum. She would have replaced Better Midler, whose ability to draw an audience proved to be less than previously thought. Instead Barbra decided to prepare to tour in support of Love is the Answer. The new album was released in September 2009 and immediately dominated the Billboard charts.
