Barbra Streisand Tickets Cancelled Due to Fraud

Published: 2006-08-30
Over a thousand tickets sold to the upcoming Barbra Streisand tour have been cancelled by Ticketmaster due to fraud.

According to Ticketmaster the tickets were purchased with a stolen credit card and then resold on other sites.

"Ticketmaster is working closely with law enforcement to assist in the investigation of this matter. Fans who have purchased or are considering purchasing tickets to these shows through a source other than Ticketmaster or the venue box office face a risk that their ticket may be invalid."

Streisand hasn't toured in over 10 years so it's no surprise at the high demand for tickets. A list of cancelled tickets is available on the Ticketmaster website so if fans purchased their tickets from a retailer other than Ticketmaster, they can check to see if their ticket is still valid.

Many of the fraudulent tickets were from her New York show at Madison Square Garden, her Atlanta show at Philips Arena or at Caesars Atlantic City. The website shows no cancelled tickets from her Canadian shows in Toronto and Montreal.
