BARBRA STREISAND SET TO PERFORM FIRST EVER CONCERT IN ZURICH, JUNE 18th
Streisand Live In Concert
Barbra Streisand will play her first ever show in Zurich with a date at Hallenstadion on June 18th. Tickets for the concerts will go on sale on Sunday May 27th.
This marks Streisand's first ever tour of Europe and a celebrated return to the UK after 13 years. This rare opportunity to see Barbra Streisand makes these concerts the most eagerly anticipated of the year.
The announcement follows the news that Barbra's two shows in London sold out in one day. A third date has now been added at The O2 Arena.
"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."
A 58 piece orchestra will accompany Ms Streisand as she performs many of the classic songs from her unique repertoire such as "Evergreen", "People", "The Way We Were", "Don't Rain on My Parade" and many more.
Martin Erlichman, Streisand's longtime manager announced the tour, and confirmed that the recent US 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.
There will be a number of additional dates added to the schedule, which will be announced soon.
On May 28th, Columbia will be releasing 'Streisand: Live In Concert 2006', which chronicles her record-breaking North American tour last autumn.

The tour will be presented by promoter Michael Cohl for Concert Productions International (CPI) and Solo.
"It is an incredible honour to bring Barbra Streisand, certainly the greatest female performer of all time, to Continental Europe for her very first concert tour," said Cohl. "It is an amazing show -- a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed."
