Barbra Steisand Review of NY Concert
NEW YORK – Barbra Streisand was visiting the new Barclays Center and was happily singing to her Brooklyn roots. Thursday’s performance was at least three-hours and a signature move for returning to her hometown. The “Back to Brooklyn” tour will be coming up on Saturday.
Barbra is one of the music industry’s most successful performers — selling more than 140 million albums worldwide (71.5 million in the U.S. alone). The RIAA says that Streisand holds the sought-after record for the most top-ten albums by any female recording artist. She’s locked up a total of 31 top-ten albums since 1963. So obviously, coming home to Brooklyn is a pretty big deal.
Although Streisand is now 70 years old, that didn’t stop the 18,000+ crowd from showing up to see her in her flowing skirt and black blazer. She sang many of the classics, including “The Way We Were”, “Evergreen” and the very popular “People”. As she held the microphone with both hands to show that she still had the voice, the crowd went wild. At one point, she said “Hello Brooklyn,” and the crowd erupted.
To compliment the great vocal performance, Streisand told jokes and responded to the screams from the passionate audience. A video played on the big screen depicting people from Streisand’s neighborhood who discussed their experiences with the singer — pointing out her personality traits, talents, and even prominent body parts — particularly her nose.
She exclaimed “I left Brooklyn to pursue my dreams and Brooklyn never quite left me.” The legend of a singer wowed the audience and often carried on conversations or poked jokes at fans. The people laughed and seemed to have an incredible time cheering her on.
The light show was fantastic and the orchestral group played in a pit by the stage. As she strolled around the stage, the visuals of purple and blue lights adorned the stage and orchestra. Although Streisand is older now, she was performing both while sitting and standing, at times she would break to answer questions from fans who had submitted questions before the show. Apparently, the audience was curious about her thoughts on lip syncing. She replied, “I’ve heard about that. I could never do it because I’m so bad at it.”. The crowded laughed and overall it was a really great time.
It would seem that politics came into the picture a bit when she made a comment about “Big Bird” — referring to the Romney vs Obama battle.
Streisand was complimented by fellow trumpet player Chris Botti and her son Jason Gould. Jason at one point earned an ovation, with the crowd standing up on their feet. The ovation was greet by Jason’s mother saying “Oh my God”.
Barbra referenced Donna Summer by performing a song they sang together called “No More Tears”. She also gave a tribute to composer Marvin Hamlisch — her late friend by singing, “The Way We Were”.
One of the best moments of the night was when she referenced another Brooklyn artist, Jay-Z. She changed some of the lyrics of her song “You’re the Top” by saying Jay-Z lyrics like “You’re a Brooklyn Net, on a private jet”, which made some of the younger crowd quite enthused.
Overall, Streisand really overwhelmed the audience who seemed satisfied and yearning for more. The “Back to Brooklyn” tour continues… on November 9th Barbara Streisand will preform at the Hollywood Bowl.

One of my best friends just recently returned from a trip to New York City, and he explained to me that the highlight of his tenure there was going to see a Broadway showing of the Book of Mormon. This anecdote greatly perked my interest, because usually my friend is a rigid critic of most anything he encounters. I hadn’t previously heard much about the musical besides the fact that its creator’s, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, were also the creators of the show South Park. So I decided that the next time I was in the Big Apple I’d have to definitely go see the performance.
After viewing the satire, I can safely say that the Book of Mormon is one of the most worthwhile experiences I’ve had in a long time! It was absolutely one of the most hilarious spectacles I have ever seen. The plot was surprisingly well constructed and it had me totally engaged the entire way through. The musical is a religious satire, so the pious might not be interested. However if you can accept the performance as a light-hearted comedic entertainment, then you should love the Book of Mormon.
The two lead actors were absolutely phenomenal, but truly the entire cast produced a flawless performance. You could really tell that everyone had their parts down impeccably.
My wife and I were positioned to the left side of the theatre, and for the most part we had an excellent view of everything. The theatre wasn’t gigantic, so the intimate atmosphere made the performance that much more lively.
The musical itself describes the tale of two youthful missionaries during their mission to a village in Uganda. When they arrive, they are confronted with realities that they did not expect. The musical details what occurs when the two naïve missionaries encounter these ‘realities’. While this might sound uncomedic, you wouldn’t believe the hilarity that ensues!
I certainly recommend the Book of Mormon to anyone that is looking for a great round of laughs. The story, acting, and entertainment is definitely worthwhile!
The Book of Mormon will be playing at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles from Sept 5th – Nov 25th. We have The Book of Mormon Tickets for all dates of the run.

The US Open Tennis is held every year in August and September over a two-week period (the weeks before and after Labor Day weekend), so August 27th – September 9th, 2012 will be the dates for the 2012 US Open Tennis Tournament.
It seems like every year that the U.S. Open tennis tournament somehow gets better. That certainly was the case again in ’11 when the two-week event at the USTA Billie Jean National Tennis Center in New York City provided countless thrilling moments and matches from start to finish. There were some huge upsets as always, but plenty of marquee names made it to the later rounds, which culminated with a spectacular men’s final featuring Novak Djokovic against Rafael Nadal. That match was set up by two tremendous semifinals with Djokovic beating Roger Federer in an epic five set match and Nadal just getting by Andy Murray. The Djokovic-Nadal final had every seat filled at Arthur Ashe Stadium, and the U.S. Open ticket holders were treated to a great match that day as Djokovic managed to prevail in four sets. The women’s singles final was also memorable, as Australian Samantha Stosur took out fan favorite Serena Williams. All in all, it was a great U.S. Open, and the next one should be just as good. So now is the time to order your U.S. Open tennis tournament tickets.
The world’s tennis superstars match up every year for the fourth and final Grand Slam tournament at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center — you can be at Center Court as the greats serve, smash and sweat their way to victory. With last year’s champions defending their titles, the 2012 US Open Tennis tournament promises to be full of grunts, groans, and glory.
The U.S. Open is the largest of the four majors when it comes to seating capacity, and in many ways it could be said that it is more popular than the Australian Open, Wimbledon and BNP Paribas Open. Part of the reason for its popularity is the venue and location itself, as Arthur Ashe Stadium, which has a capacity of 23,200 as the largest tennis venue in the world, and the 10,000-seat Louis Armstrong Stadium are both great places to watch tennis. And of course New York City is a great place to visit and do some sightseeing when you are not watching tennis. We can even help you find some Broadway show tickets or New York City sports tickets for any other events you want to see. So order your U.S. Open Tennis tickets today.

The Super Bowl is the final contest of the NFL professional football season and determines the league’s annual champion. Currently the Super Bowl routinely finishes among the all-time top 50 programs in television ratings, and the 2011 game was no exception, setting a new record for the biggest American TV audience for a single broadcast, some 111 million viewers.
Now probably the most important single-day sporting event in the United States, the Super Bowl had more modest beginnings, as did the sport itself. Football in America had its start in a game November 6, 1869, when Rutgers and Princeton played a college soccer football game. The game used modified London Football Association rules. During the next seven years, rugby gained favor with the major eastern schools over soccer, and modern football began to develop from rugby. At the Massasoit convention, of 1876, the first rules for American football were written. It was here that Walter Camp, who would become known as the father of American football, first became involved with the game.
In 1902, baseball’s Philadelphia Athletics, managed by Connie Mack, and the Philadelphia Phillies formed professional football teams, joining the Pittsburgh Stars in the first attempt at a pro football league, named the National Football League. The Athletics won the first night football game ever played, 39-0 over Kanaweola AC at Elmira, New York, November 21.
All three teams claimed the pro championship for the year, but the league president, Dave Berry, named the Stars the champions. Pitcher Rube Waddell was with the Athletics, and pitcher Christy Mathewson a fullback for Pittsburgh. The first World Series of pro football, actually a five-team tournament, was played among a team made up of players from both the Athletics and the Phillies, but simply named New York; the New York Knickerbockers; the Syracuse AC; the Warlow AC; and the Orange (New Jersey) AC at New York’s original Madison Square Garden. New York and Syracuse played the first indoor football game before 3,000, December 28. Syracuse, with Glen (Pop) Warner at guard, won 6-0 and went on to win the tournament.
In 1903, the Franklin (PA) Athletic Club won the second and last World Series of pro football over the Oreos AC of Asbury Park, New Jersey; the Watertown Red and Blacks; and the Orange AC. Changes ensued over the next 6 decades — with names, teams, players, and conference alignments coming and going. And in 1967, Congress approved the AFL-NFL merger, passing legislation exempting the agreement itself from antitrust action, October 21.
That same year, the champions of the American Football League (which merged with the NFL in 1970) and the NFL met in what was called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. The name was later shortened to Super Bowl, named after a child’s toy, the Super Ball. In this first game, the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10. The Los Angeles Coliseum, site of the game, fell far short of a sellout, although tickets were only $10 each.
The National Football League’s Super Bowl XLVI will take place on February 5, 2012 in Lucas Oil Stadium in Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. It will be the NFL’s 46th annual Super Bowl.
Kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Eastern, 5:30 p.m. Central, 4:30 p.m. Mountain and 3:30 p.m. Pacific time.
Lucas Oil Stadium
Lucas Oil Stadium opened in August 2008. The normal seating for the stadium is 63,000 but will be increased to more than 70,000 for Super Bowl XLVI. The stadium cost approximately $720 million to construct and features a retractable roof and a unique large window at one end of the field.
