Streisand To Tour Europe

Barbra Streisand is hitting continental Europe this summer for the first time and the U.K. for the first time since 1994.

The tour, produced by Michael Cohl’s CPI and the U.K.’s Solo Agency, will take in five dates starting in late June in Vienna’s Schloss Schonbrun and ending at The O2 Arena in London July 18th after taking in Nice and Paris, France, and Dublin. More dates are forthcoming, according to Streisand’s official Web site.

"What a joy it will be to perform in so many wonderful countries for the first time," said Streisand, who will be joined by a 58-piece orchestra on the tour. "I can’t wait to experience these different audiences and cultures."

"It’s an incredible honor to bring Barbra Streisand, certainly the greatest female performer of all time, to continental Europe for her very first concert tour," Cohl said. "It is an amazing show – a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed."
