STREISAND TO PLAY FIRST EVER CONCERTS IN BERLIN AND MANCHESTER

Due to extraordinary demand across Europe, Barbra Streisand European Tour promoter Michael Cohl announced today the addition of two new dates on the Barbra Streisand European Tour.

In order to accommodate the demand, shows have been added in Berlin at the Waldbuhne (June 30) and Manchester at the Manchester Evening News Arena (July 10).

The June 30 date in Berlin will go on sale Friday, June 1 with a range of ticket prices starting at 95. The July 10 Manchester date also goes on sale June 1 with ticket prices starting at £75. Special VIP packages are also available for both cities.

"Since the announcement of the tour, we have received unprecedented demand from around the world to see Barbra perform live, and we are trying our best to keep up with the requests," stated Cohl.  "We're very happy to be able to accommodate the overwhelming reaction by adding these new shows." 

This marks Streisand's first-ever tour of Europe and a celebrated return to the UK after 13 years.  The first two nights of her three night stint at the O2 Arena in London sold out in one day, with the third London date nearing capacity as well. Shows in Vienna, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich, and Dublin are expected to sell out.

The recent North American tour, her first in six years, had broken box office records in a staggering 14 of the 16 venues she played. She already held, and still holds, the record in the remaining 2 venues. Designated proceeds from the tour will support her various philanthropic initiatives and will be distributed through The Streisand Foundation both in the U.S. and in Europe.

On May 28th, SonyBMG released 'Streisand: Live In Concert 2006', which chronicles her record-breaking North American tour last autumn.  The double disc will feature the finest live performances of her best-loved standards, rarely performed catalogue gems, duets with Il Divo and onstage dialogue.

Barbra Streisand is the US music industry's #1 best-selling female recording artist. She is second in the all-time charts, ahead of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, exceeded only by Elvis. Streisand remains the only artist to receive an Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, Cable Ace, Peabody Awards and the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award.
