After all these years, after all these years! After two Oscars, 10 Grammys, 10 Golden Globes, five Emmys, and scores of concerts, Barbra Streisand is headed here for her first  H-Town concert.

The announcement was made on Wednesday that "due to unprecedented international demand" the iconic singer will bring her The Music . . . The Mem'ries . . . The Magic! tour to Toyota Center on November 27.

New tour dates include Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Tickets go on sale to the public Thursday, September 29, available at Live Nation, the Toyota Center, at 1-866-4-HOUTIX, and at most area Randalls stores. American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning at 10 am on September 22 through 10 pm September 26.

The reviews of the show have been impressive. 

"Barbra Streisand sounded like diamonds. And porcelain and a freshly drawn bath and consommé.”  The New York Times

“After witnessing her show last night, I can reconfirm that she's still an extraordinary singer and entertainer the likes of which we may never see again.” NPR

“This one is the stuff of Streisand-holics’ dreams.” Billboard/The Hollywood Reporter

Not bad for a singer born in 1942.
