People who need Barbra Streisand are apparently the luckiest people in Israel. Ending weeks of unconfirmed speculation, the iconic songstress/actress/diva has announced that she will perform for the first time ever in the country on June 20 at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.
Accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra, the 70-year-old Streisand will end a select tour of Europe with the show at the stadium which holds 16,000 spectators. Two days earlier, she is expected to perform privately at the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem in honor of President Shimon Peres's 90th birthday.
Tickets for the Bloomfield show, a joint production of Shuki Weiss and Live Nation, will go on sale on March 29 at 10 a.m. via www.eventim.co.il or *9066. Ticket prices start at NIS 420.
