Now that Barbara Streisand has finally agreed to share her voice with the people of Israel, it seems like the Jewish State is hesitant to let her get away too fast.

Streisand, who is set to perform privately on June 18th at the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem in honour of President Shimon Peres’ 90th birthday, also confirmed that she will perform in public in her first ever performance in the Jewish State two days after the Peres bash at Bloomfield Stadium in Jaffa.

Now comes word that due to an overwhelming demand in tickets to that concert, Babs, 70, may be adding a second concert date.

Accompanied by a 60- piece orchestra, Babs will end her tour of Europe with the show at the 16,000 seat stadium.

Streisand has became a household name throughout her 50-year career. With projects like “Funny Girl” and “The Way We Were,” it’s no wonder the talented performer has been awarded every American accolade. In fact, she is one of the only entertainers that has won a Grammy, Oscar, Emmy, and Tony Award.

Ticket sales began last Friday, and most were snatched up within several days. A small number of tickets are still available for the original date.

Getting Streisand to perform in Israel has been an ongoing task for many years now, and some members of her staff have even visited the country on a scouting mission of sorts, looking for a venue that the singer would ultimately agree was up to her high standards.
