Barbra Streisand - a true icon and arguably one of the most important artists of the last half-century - is set to make her BST Hyde Park debut on Sunday 7 July 2019.
A moviestar, activist and theatre star, Streisand is mostly known for her hit songs – ‘Guilty’, ‘Woman In Love’, ‘The Way We Were’, ‘No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)’, ‘Rain On My Parade’ and many more – Streisand is the epitome of original.
Her list of acheievements is enviable; two Oscars, 10 Grammys (including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award), five Emmys, the Special Tony Award, American Film Institute Award, Kennedy Center Honors Prize, four Peabody Awards, the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and nine Golden Globes.
Joining Streisand at this incredibly special show are two legends in their own right: Bryan Ferry and Kris Kristofferson.
The frontman for one of Britain’s most influential bands, Roxy Music, brought Bryan Ferry prominence as one of Britain’s most distinctive music artists, but also carved out a hugely successful solo career that continues in typically sophisticated manner to this day.
Kris Kristofferson is a country musician with an unbelievable history; he excelled at Oxford University and in the US Army before pursuing his passion as a songwriter. His talents as a musician sparked the interest of Hollywood, leading him to flourish as an award-winning actor.
Streisand has also worked with fellow BST headliner Celine Dion, as well as Ray Charles, Donna Summer, Neil Diamond and many more. She has had Number 1 albums in each of the last six decades - the greatest longevity for any solo recording artist with 11 US Number 1 albums, six in the UK and is simply one of the best loved and most decorated artists in any medium alive today.
