See this multi-millionairess here? She wants more money off you. And lots of it.
Barbra Streisland (the ‘l’ is silent) is coming to the UK and she’s going to make us pay for it. In spades. Top tickets – which go on sale at 9am tomorrow (dialing fingers at the ready) – cost a cool £600. Yes, the price of a four-star holiday in Mykonos with rent boys and booze thrown in. But then, you already knew that.
The concert in question takes place on 18th July at The Artist Formerly Known as The Millennium Dome – now called O2 or something – and it’s still not clear whether Barbra (the middle ‘a’ is invisible) will be dragging Il Bloody Divo into the equation as she did during her stint at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. But it least it meant you had time to nip to the loo and pick up merchandise in the form of programmes ($50, thank you very much) and keyrings (a much more penny-price-wise £5).
But we still – despite acute financial difficulties – think it’s worth every penny.
