Barbra Streisand, What Matters Most

Story by Jack Foley

MUSIC icon Barbra Streisand is to perform in London’s Hyde Park this summer – her first UK concert date in six years.

The 76-year-old, known for such hits as Guilty, The Way We Were and Don’t Rain On My Parade, will make her British Summer Time debut on July 7, 2019.

The singer, who released a new album, Walls, last year, performed in London at the O2 Arena in 2013.

Streisand joins a star-studded line-up of concerts in Hyde Park this year, which further includes Celine Dion and Robbie Williams, as well as Neil Young and Bob Dylan, whose joint concert on July 12 will not be held under the British Summer Time (BST) banner.

Streisand, the recipient of two Oscars, 10 Grammys and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, has not given a concert since her Barbra Live tour ended in Tel Aviv in June 2013.

Walls, her first set of original songs since 2005, includes tracks critical of President Trump’s administration and America’s current political climate. Indeed, she continues to be a very vocal critic of Trump and has continued to attack the current US President via her Twitter account.

Streisand also appeared at the Academy Awards last month to introduce a clip from Spike Lee’s Oscar-nominated film BlacKkKlansman.
