Barbra Streisand: The $750 Woman

If you’re a Barbra Streisand fan, you’re probably already on her mailing list — and the mailing list for every concert ticket opportunity. A Queerty reader who happens to be a subscriber sent along this missive from Babs, notifying him of a special opportunity: to snag advance sale tickets to see Streisand at San Jose’s HP Pavilion. And they’re a steal: just $750!

Barbra Streisand tickets

Hell, we paid $350 for Madonna and nearly shit ourselves. Perhaps you can’t top $750 (or can you?), but let’s have at it: What’s the most outrageous price you’ve paid for concert tickets? And did you regret it?

After the jump, the full Barbra ticket notice.

    I didn’t buy them but tickets for Cream’s 2005 Royal Albert Hall reunion gig were going for $3,000 on line from London Ticket brokers

    ..And HP Pavilion isn’t even that great a concert spot, if you ask me. I saw Dolly Parton there and had to crane my neck just to see her, hundreds of feet away like a tiny little speck with big hair.

    Is this a fund raising for her manicurist and pedicurist? A charitable foundation for the betterment of Bab’s nails? I had a trick once who after giving me a great head put on a wig and lypsinced to a whole Streisand cd. Well I’d rather have that again than pay $750 to see the real one.

    and every queen making fun of this that has a $352 Madonna ticket: mr. pot is on the phone asking for a mr. kettle; could you please pick up?

    (granted I sold my $352 Madonna ticket on craigslist as I didn’t want to go with my ex ….)

    I paid $2500 for her New Year’s Eve concert in LV (supposed to be her last one ever) and then DIDN’T EVEN GO. Moron twice.

    I’m happy to say that my full conversion to homosexuality is complete. I got tickets to her 10/22 show at Bost0n Garden. I am not ashamed to say I love Barbra (however, I can honestly say I only have one of her albums, a double disk of greatest hits). I am certainly not the kind of guy who will be there with his aging mother. I see Barbra as the last of a generation of great singers like Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Judy Garland… there I go again. She’s a legend and I have no doubt this will be my one shot at seeing her perform live.

    I’ve needed to confess this for many years. Good for the soul, so they say. Two tix @ $1,500 each for 4th row, center, Blond Ambition. I still hate myself. I had to drink a bottle of champagne and take two hits of Ex just to relax because my wallet kept biting me in the ass.
