Brooklyn-born superstar Barbra Streisand will play a second homecoming concert at the Barclays Center this fall.
The “Funny Girl” will take the stage in the soon-to-open arena for her first-ever Brooklyn show on Oct. 11 — then the eight-time Grammy Award winner will follow it up with an Oct. 13 encore performance.
Tickets to the second concert went on sale at 10 am on Monday and Babs fans sprung into action.
“Just sealed the deal!” wrote one Twitter user. “This girl is seeing @BarbraStreisand in concert!”
Some Barbra lovers complained about on-again, off-again ticket availability and confusing “sold out” announcements.
Barclays Center spokesman Barry Baum said tickets were still available on Monday afternoon and that there’s a four-ticket cap per buyer to keep resellers from hogging seats.
He did not immediately know how many tickets remain available.
Ticketmaster has seats starting at $385.90 for both shows.
More than a dozen ticket holders are trying to flip Streisand tickets on Craigslist — with some asking for as much as $750 per seat.
The online ticket seller StubHub has tickets for the Oct. 11 concert starting at $119 and tickets for the Oct. 13 performance starting at $119.Reach reporter Natalie O'Neill at noneill@cn
