Performing in Las Vegas tonight at the MGM Grand is none other than the legendary singer Barbara Streisand. With tickets ranging from about $100-800, you are going to want to act fast to pick them up as her shows sell out ridiculously fast. You don't want to kick yourself later for missing out on one of the most important singers of our time.
Barbra Streisand didn't like Vegas much at first because it was a city so unlike herself.
It was the summer of 1963, the young singer was but 21, earning $7,500 a week warming the stage for Liberace at the Riviera.
It was her biggest payday up to that point, but Streisand wasn't enamored with the town - the glitz, the manufactured glamour, the emphasis on the cosmetic.
Streisand stood in contrast to all of that, at least back then.
