Barbra Streisand Tours for Charity

Published: 2006-08-28
The eternal diva Ms. Barbra Streisand is mounting a tour this fall and giving proceeds to those who need it most.

Streisand, who hasn't taken the stage since 2000 and hasn't toured since 1994, is touring this fall and including her first ever dates in Toronto and Montreal.
According to LiveDaily Streisand said, "The increasingly urgent need for private citizen support to combat dangerous climate change, along with education and health issues was the prime reason I decided to tour again. This will allow me to direct funds and awareness to causes that I care deeply about." Funds will go to her Streisand Foundation to help organizations concerned with the environment, education and women's health.
Regular tickets along with special packages that include an exclusive gift item, tour program and collectible laminate are available on Ticketmaster.
The 20 shows, taking place between October 4 and November 20, will be opened by pretty-boy opera group ll Divo, who were discovered by American Idol's Simon Cowell.
Here are the details to her Canadian dates:
October 15, Montreal, QC - Bell Centre
October 16, Toronto, ON - Air Canada Centre
