Following her high profile appearance at the Oscars last month Barbra Streisand has announced a European tour.
Dates in Cologne, Amsterdam, London and Paris follow her North American tour of 2012.
Barbra Streisand Live will include a full orchestra and special guests Chris Botti, her son Jason Gould, and sister Roslyn Kind, all of whom performed last year on Back to Brooklyn.

She is, in fact, the recipient of 2 Oscars, 5 Emmys, 10 Grammys, a Tony and 12 Golden Globes including the Cecil B. DeMille Award. She is also the first female film director to receive the Kennedy Center Honors. The three films she directed received 14 Oscar nominations.
