Barbra Streisand announces tour, 'Encore' album
'Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway' will be released following the concert dates
Barbra Streisand returns to the stage later this year with brand new tour dates and a new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, her longtime manager Marty Erlichman announced Monday. The run will begin Aug. 2 in Los Angeles and continue through the end of the month, finishing in Toronto after making two stops in Streisand’s hometown Brooklyn.
Encore will be released after the tour ends, according to a release, which also stated that Streisand will sing career hits as well as songs from Encore. Every ticket purchase will include a physical release of the new album.
Encore follows Streisand’s 2014 album Partners, and will feature duets with some of “Hollywood’s biggest stars to sing Broadway classics.” This will be her third Broadway-focused album, following 1985’s The Broadway Album and 1994’s Back to Broadway.
She last toured in 2012 when she made an emotional return to Brooklyn for the Back to Brooklyn run.
Tickets for her August tour will go on sale May 25, and will be available to American Express customers starting on Wednesday.
