|Barbra Streisand concert chronology|
Barbra Streisand in Concert is Barbra Streisand's First full tour which ran from 1993 through 1994. The tour consisted of 26 shows starting on New Year's Eve 1993 in Las Vegas and ended Anaheim, California in July 1994. The 18 shows that went on sale following the new year concerts in Las Vegas sold out in 1 hour. This tour was also the first time Barbra toured anywhere in Europe and was the last until her Streisand: The Tour in 2006.
Until this tour Barbra had only toured once in 1966, where she cut an initially planned 20 city tour, to 4 dates, due to her pregnancy. Although she has sung concerts this was her first tour after a suggested 28 year bout of Stage Fright.
According to Barbra's official website. The tour set attendance and box office records in every city it played in with the first 18 dates selling out within 1 hour. The phone requests for tickets reached 5 million within the first hour the tour went on sale. The tour grossed $50 million in 1994.
