Six years after a sell-out farewell concert, Barbra Streisand has announced that she will stage a 20-show charity tour of the United States in October.
Via her own Streisand Foundation, the singer plans to donate millions of dollars to environmental, education and women’s health organisations.
Her previous two scheduled concerts in 2000 at Madison Square Garden grossed over $14 million.
Explaining her return to the limelight, Streisand said, "The increasingly urgent need for private citizen support to combat dangerous climate change, along with education and health issues was the prime reason I decided to tour again.
“This will allow me to direct funds and awareness to causes that I care deeply about.”
