Here's the news that local Barbra Streisand fans have been waiting to hear:
Babs has added a Nov. 5 show at HP Pavilion in San Jose.
Tickets, priced from $90 to $531.25, go on sale 10 a.m. Sept. 24 through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com). Streisand's guests for the show are contemporary jazz trumpeter Chris Botti and young Italian tenors Il Volo.
Streisand, of course, is generally regarded as one of the greatest vocalists in history. And she's certainly one of the most accomplished.
She's won 10 Grammys, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement and Grammy Legend awards. She's also notched 51 gold albums, 30 platinum albums and 13 multiplatinum albums. Most impressively, she ranks as the No. 1 best-selling female artist in history.
In 2011, Streisand released her 33rd studio album, "What Matters Most," which reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
