Streisand Smashes Box Office Records With Us Tour
BARBRA STREISAND is back in the record books after setting new theatre bests at 14 of the 16 venues she played during her recent North American tour. The singer's 20 shows, which wrapped up in Los Angeles last week (ends24NOV06) grossed a staggering $92.5 million (GBP51.4 million) and set records in almost all of the arenas she played. And the only person who beat her at Madison Square Garden in New York and Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena was herself. Producer MICHAEL COHL insists the tour was such a success, he's in negotiations with Streisand to plan more dates in 2007. He says, "We're talking about it. From the stage in Los Angeles she said that she's thinking of going to Europe and the Far East, so here's hoping it happens."
