NEW YORK — Barbra Streisand was full of Brooklyn pride as she belted well-known tunes with passion during a concert at the newly built Barclays Center.
Thursday night's three-hour show was Streisand's return to her Brooklyn hometown, where she's also performing Saturday.
The 70-year-old told the crowd of 18,000 the last time she performed solo in Brooklyn was "on somebody's stoop on Pulaski Street" as an 8-year-old. She played with the crowd, often telling jokes and taking in the many screams of "I love you Barbra!"
She entered the stage in a shimmery black ensemble, holding her hands close to the microphone as she performed songs like "People," ''Evergreen" and "The Way We Were."
Streisand sang a duet with her son, Jason Gould, asking the 45-year-old: "Do you need anything, like, a sweater?"
