SUNRISE, FLA (Sept. 21, 2016) – Sunrise Sports and Entertainment announced today that Barbra Streisand will bring her legendary live performance to BB&T Center on Saturday, Dec. 3 as part of her THE MUSIC…THE MEM’RIES…THE MAGIC! Tour.
Streisand, who made history last week when she hit number one on the Billboard 200 album chart for the 11th time, received rave reviews and played in front of packed arenas in Los Angeles, San Jose, Las Vegas, Chicago, Brooklyn, Boston, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Toronto during her August tour dates.

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).
Streisand’s 2012 tour, BACK TO BROOKLYN, highlighted an emotional return to performing in concert in her home borough for the first time since she was in grade school. Of the first of her Brooklyn shows, which helped inaugurate the brand new Barclays Center, The New York Times 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 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.”
Followinga North American run, the tour broke records throughout Europe, and culminated in two spine-tingling performances in Israel, thrilling crowds who “loved her even before a perfectly-pitched note came out of her mouth,” as described by Haaretz, “and every note was, indeed perfect.”
