Barbra Streisand has announced eight rare performances in a short tour around North America starting on October 8 in Philadelphia and ending October 29 in Vancouver.

Streisand tours have been few and far between her entire career, so these dates are rare chances to hear the singer in a live setting. Opening for Streisand will be Il Volo and Chris Botti.

Tickets go on-sale August 11 for the Montreal date and August 13 for the balance; however, those who subscribe to the Streisand newsletter will have a chance at obtaining tickets through an exclusive pre-sale on August 9.
