Barbra at Barclays Oct.11 Tickets on sale May 21



Barclays Center finally gave up the ghost this morning, confirming the Brooklyn Eagle's report that Barbra Streisand would be an opening-weeks act at Barclays Center.

In a statement emailed to news organizations at dawn, Barclays publicist Barry Baum announced:

"The most accomplished female recording artist ever, with 10 Grammys — including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement and Grammy Legend Awards — 51 gold albums, 30 platinum albums, and 13 multi-platinum albums, Streisand will be making a triumphant return to her native borough.


"Raised in the Flatbush neighborhood and a graduate of Erasmus Hall High School, Streisand will perform publicly for the first time in Brooklyn.

"According to the RIAA, Barbra Streisand is the #1 best selling female recording artist in history and the only woman to make the Top 10 all time best selling artists list."

The Eagle — along with the Brooklyn Paper and AtlanticYardsReport — last week fueled speculation about Barbra's appearance. At the time, Baum was mum. "I’m not going to comment on rumors," he told the Eagle's Raanan Geberer.
