    Barbara Streisand is appearing in Brooklyn at the Barclay Center in October. It's the new home of the New Jersey Nets. Tickets on the floor are priced from $1732 a piece to a jaw dropping $13125. These have to be the most expensive face value tickets for any event ever. You're getting a Barbara Streisand who is 70 years old. If you could bring back John Lennon and George Harrison from the dead and reunite the Beatles you couldn't get these prices.

    If Beth wanted to attend would Howard pay for the millionaires row tickets or would he demand that got them comped.

    He'd pick up the red phone and guilt Barbara directly. He wouldn't let her off the hooknose until she gave in.

    Gays and old ladies have a lot of disposable income.

    That can't be. I was dragged to her final farewell performance tour many years ago. And it was crazily priced then.

    For a woman with stage fright she sure does like money.

    $1732?! That's about what you'd have to pay me to sit through a Barbara Streisand concert.

    Yup, that's why she "retired" from public singing... several times. Somehow the promise of enough cash seems to cure the condition temporarily. Too bad Diane Lane's father-in-law can't take care of his woman...

    So, only the wealthy 1% can afford to attend one of her concerts? Another rich Jew celeb with a big snoze who pisses on her fans. Sound familar?

    That's a scalper site. Ticketmaster was selling the tickets for (only) $717.

    Your right. I got tricked into thinking it was the actual ticket website. There are upper bowl side stage tickets at available at $385 from TicketMonster. It looks like the ticket brokers control all floor seats and they are asking between $900-$13,000 a ticket depending where they are located. I was actually looking for Mike Tyson tickets on Broadway where he is doing his one man show directed by Spike Lee at the end of July and somehow got directed to that NewYorkTheater website. Scalpers are scum going back to that prick in Fast Times at Ridgemont High who got Jennifer Jason Leigh pregnant.
