"Streisand has Europe wanting more" (Reuters)
"And the voice, oh the voice. What an instrument of beauty and wonder it is, whether wrapping itself around a grief-stricken You Don't Bring Me Flowers, slipping into French during Ma Premiere Chanson or being fabulously sultry on Unusual Way. And when she hummed the first bars of The Way We Were, I had a genuine attack of goose-bumps."

Barbra Streisand tonight continued her box-office, record-breaking European tour at Ireland's Palladian Mansion, the State Historic Castletown House, which was once the ancestral (O Conghaile) home of the former Speaker of the Irish House of Commons William Conolly.
This is the sixth stop on Streisand's first ever European tour, and it was her first performance in Ireland, as part of her series of concerts. Tovább »
Barbra's 17,000 devoted fans braved the traffic queues due to the heavy downpours earlier in the day to give her a standing ovation as she appeared in the palatial open-air setting of Ireland's Historic Castletown House.
After the rains stopped and the clouds parted, a breathtaking rainbow appeared behind Barbra just as she finished her opening number, "Starting Here, Starting Now". The excited crowd called to Barbra to turn around and witness a moment that one would have had to see to believe! Tovább »
Barbra Streisand tonight continued her record-breaking European tour with yet another house box-office record at Manchester's M.E.N Arena.
This is the fifth stop on Streisand's first ever European tour, and it was her first performance as part of her UK series of concerts.
If the 14,000 fans in attendance were nervous about Streisand's recent vocal illness it was quickly dissipated as Streisand was greeted by thunderous applause and a standing ovation upon taking the stage and again after the first song.
Last night, Barbra performed in Manchester for the first time. Here's what the press had to say!
"ait is only in live performance, in her first UK appearance in the first tour she has ever done in Europe, that the power, range and unique tonal quality of her voice becomes fully apparent."
"From the first song, the big ballad "Starting Here, Starting Now", the audience's faith was justified. It was a voice of enormous power but superb control."Tovább »
