TAMPA – Barbra Streisand, who made history earlier this month when she hit number one on the Billboard 200 album chart for the 11th time, will bring her legendary live performances to Tampaas part of her THE MUSIC…THE MEM’RIES…THE MAGIC! tour.

THE MUSIC…THE MEM’IRES…THE MAGIC! features Streisand’s performing her hits from each decade and other favorites, including from her latest number one album, ENCORE: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, celebrating a career of unparalleled creative achievement.
The best-selling female recording artist, Streisand has recorded 52 gold, 31 platinum and 13 multi-platinum albums in her career. She is the only woman to make the All-Time Top 10 Best Selling Artists list. Streisand also has the longest span of number one albums in history, just under 52 years.
With her live performances being so rare and special, the excitement surrounding a Streisand tour is unequaled. Following a 27-year hiatus from live concerts, Streisand’s 1994 world tour garnered a record-setting 5 million phone requests to Ticketmaster and sold out within the first hour. Her shows in fall 2006 broke house records in 14 of the 16 venues in which she played (in the other two arenas, Streisand already held the buildings’ records).
The New York Times has praised Streisand’s “spellbinding voice” and noted, “Like few singers of any age, she has the gift of conveying a primal human longing in a beautiful sound.”
The Los Angeles Times has said she “put the audience immediately under the spell of her folksy grandiosity. Streisand … isn’t just a star she’s a world view, a style of being, an entire cosmology, with the highest possible thread-count sheets. You don’t just come for the music; you come for the whole church service. The sermon, broken up into bits, is inseparable from the songs.”
Tickets will go on sale Thursday (Sept. 29) and will be available online, via charge-by-phone and venue box offices. Every ticket purchased online includes a copy of Streisand’s new album ENCORE: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.
