Babs says bye bye

Singer-actress Barbra Streisand has announced her final concert appearances.

In the past she has said that live performances cause her anxiety and she has finally decided to close that chapter of her career with two shows in New York (Sept. 20 and 21) and two in Los Angeles (Sept. 21 and 28). These concerts will follow an appearance at a fundraiser for presidential candidate Al Gore in Los Angeles on August 17th.

At the Democratic function, Streisand will be one of several performers but will sing the last three songs.

Tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster on July 30 for the Los Angeles concerts and on July 31 for the New York engagements.
