Barbra Streisand May Perform at Barclays Center

The iconic singer is said to be planning an appearance at the new arena in the fall—her first major New York City performance since 2006.

Happy days are here again—at least, if rumors can be believed. Brooklyn’s own funny girl Barbra Streisand may be returning to the borough in October to perform at the Barclays Center, according to a recent report.

Streisand’s last performance in New York City was a special show for fans and VIPs at the intimate jazz club Village Vanguard, back in September 2009. Previously, she performed sold-out concerts at Madison Square Garden in 2006.

Streisand would easily be the biggest concert at the arena so far, even with .
