Barbra Streisand sets Hollywood Bowl date for concert tour
Babs is coming to the Bowl.
As part of her 2012 concert tour -- her first in five years -- Barbra Streisand has added a performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Nov. 9. The 8 p.m. concert is the only scheduled Los Angeles stop on the tour.
The concert is expected to feature the 70-year-old singer performing some of her most famous numbers, as well as appearances by jazz trumpeter Chris Botti and the operatic pop tenor group Il Volo.
Streisand’s tour includes stops in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Chicago, Vancouver, Las Vegas and San Jose.
The Streisand concert is a lease event, so isn’t part of the L.A. Philharmonic’s Bowl season, which is set to conclude later this month.
Streisand has performed at the Bowl before, including a 1967 concert: “An Evening with Barbra Streisand.”
