NEW YORK (AP) - Superstar Barbra Streisand is coming home to Brooklyn.
The Oscar- and Grammy-winning diva was born and raised in Brooklyn but has never performed publicly there _ until now.
Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center arena announced Wednesday that Streisand will give a concert there on Oct. 11.
Barclays Center is still under construction and will be home to the NBA’s Nets. CEO Brett Yormark says Streisand’s concert will be a defining moment for the arena.
Streisand is one of the world’s best-selling recording artists and is one of the few entertainers who have won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award. She rarely performs in public.
