Why You Can’t Miss Barbra Streisand’s 2016 Tour
Barbra Streisand is back on tour! With a new album dropping soon, she’ll be hitting nine cities this August. The North American tour is a rare chance to see one of the ultimate music legends in action. Barbra Streisand’s prolific career is too impressive to condense to a single blog post, so here are five undeniable reasons why you can’t miss seeing Babs live.
With such an unbelievable career, there are almost too many songs that will keep you tingling with anticipation. A chance to see “The Way We Were” or “Don’t Rain on My Parade” live is not an opportunity to take lightly. Barbra Streisand is a legend and has been for decades. There is no telling how many tours are left before she decides to hang the proverbial hat, so get out there and experience one of the greatest voices and performers of all time while you still can.
Speaking of legendary performances, is there anyone with a better resume in the world? From her jaw-dropping career on Broadway to her many guest appearances, Grammy performances and concert tours, there is nothing that compares to a Streisand show. To say she still has it after all of these years is a terrible understatement. Her passion and charisma still light up the stage.
She’s still releasing new music, and it’s as good as ever. For some artists, too much time in the business can steal their thunder or drain their creativity. Not so for Ms. Streisand. Partners was her thirty-fourth album, and it was released in 2014. It still topped the U.S. Billboard charts and has sold over one million copies. The newest album, Encore, is slated to release this year. Missing a chance to be one of the first to hear some of the soon-to-be hits is a shameful prospect.
You won’t find a venue full of Beliebers here. Instead, you can expect a rare sight. Older generations have been in love with Barbra Streisand for the duration of her career. At her shows, you can expect to see diversity and inclusion that spans the length of modern American history. You can jam with every living generation all at one show, and you won’t find a single person who is anything less than completely in thrall to the performance.
The Woman Herself
Basically everyone in the world knows the story of Barbra Streisand by now, but if you somehow missed it all these years, here are the CliffsNotes. Her father died while she was still an infant. When she tried to begin her career, she was told she was too ugly for stage performance. She persevered and devoted herself to perfection and ended up becoming one of the biggest stars of every stage. In fact, she was the first person to ever accumulate a Grammy, Emmy, Oscar and Tony. Add her Peabody to the mix and you find an accomplishment only matched by one other person.
