Barbra Streisand -- one of the greatest living legends of the screen, stage and recording studio -- returns in 2016 with a tour and new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, her longtime manager Marty Erlichman announced today (May 16).
The new album tips to her inestimable contributions to Broadway and Hollywood by pairing Streisand "with some of Hollywood's biggest stars to sing Broadway classics," according to the press release.
The 2016 tour will see Streisand hitting nine cities, starting in Los Angeles on Aug. 2, working through her native Brooklyn for two dates on Aug. 11 & 13, and wrapping in Toronto on Aug. 23 (full tour dates below). Streisand's live performances are as revered as they are scarce. Her last tour was 2012's Back to Brooklyn, a celebrated run featuring songs from a storied career that has seen Streisand become the only artist to notch No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 in six separate decades.
