Barbra Streisand to headline huge 2019 show at BST Hyde Park

The screen icon is heading to London...

Barbra Streisand has been announced as the next headliner for British Summer Time series in Hyde Park.

The legendary stage and screen icon will headline the mammoth gig on Sunday July 7, alongside a supporting bill of special guests that will be announced in the coming months.

General admission tickets for the one-off gig start at £69.95 and can be purchased from 9AM on Thursday March 14.

 

James King, Senior Vice President of AEG Presents said: “Barbra Streisand is without question one of the most influential and decorated artists in history. She is a global icon and a pioneer across the entire entertainment industry. It is an honour to have an artist of her stature performing at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.”

Streisand is the latest prestigious name to be announced for the annual concert series, and joins a line up that also includes Florence & the Machine, Celine Dion, and Robbie Williams.

It was previously announced that BST would also host a co-headline show from Bob Dylan & Neil Young, although they dropped their association with the event after Young objected to Barclays sponsoring it.

He criticised BST’s “fossil fuel entity” sponsorship with Barclays, before it was confirmed that the show would go ahead without BST’s backing.

Other BST headline shows for 2019 are set to be announced in due course.
