Barbra Streisand to Play Brooklyns Barclay Center

BARBRA STREISAND COMES HOME: Brooklyn’s Favorite Daughter to Perform at Barclays Center.

The Brooklyn-born and raised, world-acclaimed superstar will perform a
concert on Thursday, October 11th, in Brooklyn at Barclays Center, the
new 19,000-seat sports and entertainment venue.

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.

Streisand stated, “Brooklyn to me means the Loews Kings, Erasmus, the
Yeshiva I went to, the Dodgers, Prospect Park, great Chinese food. I’m
so glad I came from Brooklyn‚ down to earth. I guess you CAN come home

“When I first thought about building an arena in Brooklyn, I always
envisioned Barbra Streisand coming home to take center-stage in her
native borough,” said Barclays Center majority owner and developer Bruce
Ratner. “It’s humbling and almost surreal to welcome arguably the
greatest entertainer of all-time to Barclays Center. Barbra is Brooklyn
and there’s nowhere more fitting for her to perform. This will be a
night to remember.”

“Barbra Streisand in Brooklyn will be a huge moment and a defining
experience for Barclays Center,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark.
“We are truly honored to bring Barbra full circle, to the borough where
it all started for her, just down Flatbush Avenue from her old
neighborhood. We are continuing our goal to bring the best of everything
to Barclays Center. Brooklyn, after all, deserves nothing less.”
