Her first show will be at The New Coliseum in Uniondale on Thursday, May 4. Streisand’s second show will take place two nights later on May 6 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The New Coliseum show will be a historic event: It’s Streisand’s first concert on Long Island since 1963. (Despite that drought of more than 50 years, Barbra was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2007.) Her historic return, coupled with her enduring popularity in her hometown of Brooklyn, means these shows will sell quickly – reserve your tickets now!
