Barbra Performs In Vegas.

Barbra Streisand performed in the Theatre of Performing Arts in the Casino and Earth Wind and Fire during the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Gala Grand opening on last night (Saturday), in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was an exact year ago, to the week -- that Barbra performed at the MGM Grand in Vegas, as part of her recording breaking 2006 US/Canada Tour.

Barbra performed 9 songs in total -- all taken from her 2006 / 2007 set lists -- including The Way We Were, Come Rain Or Come Shine, Funny Girl Medley (inc. My Man / Funny Girl) and Evergreen.

The previous night, Barbra attended a show -- here is a report sent into BarbraNews:

Last night, Barbra attended the 10pm performace of Cirque du Soleil's The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage. Her party included Jim, Marty Hom, Richard Jay Alexander, Jay Landers, Renata (so super nice! I wasn't expecting her to have an accent, where is she from?), and a woman named Kendall. I had the priviledge of meeting her car and walking the group to their seats! It was amazing!

She was so much taller than I had expected. Sweet, polite, interested, and excited are all words I would use to describe her demenor. She had absolutley no makeup on and looked fabulous. Everyone was commenting on how fantastic she looked. (And I know this is weird, but she smelled great too!!) I think she could tell I was nervous, because as she was walking next to me, she but her arm around my shoulder and said "thanks for assisting us cutie!". I almost died.

I brought her a small bottle of Pellegrino, which she enjoyed. She travels with a super cute boy named John. He is her security for the past 3 years. It's all still super surreal. After the show, she stopped to take a few pictures with cast members. She couldn't stop raving about how much she loved LOVE!

More coming soon.
