Sold out within half an hour... 100 tickets now on ebay for coming up to 1200... I have one upset and slightly peeved housemate who wanted two top price tickets!!

Ticketmaster have top-price seats available, side view though
Turn up the signal... wipe out the noise

Last time she came she spent the whole time reading the songs and the audience "banter" off an autocue. I won't be wasting my money. I doubt I'd shell out 600 to see Callas and Caruso sing together....


The last time Barbra visited London she did in fact use autocues. However, she was never really looking at them and she even commented to the audience that inbetween songs they switched them off. So all the crap about audience banter is utter newspaper tripe! How on earth could Barbra predict what people were going to shout out - grow up!!! I was third row centre at Wembley - the autocues were clearly visible to me, however only whilst she sang. For those who wonder why, she once forgot her words during a song in Central Park, she felt humiliated and thus she uses them now.

I shall be there on the 18th and 22nd with my 250 tickets enjoying the greatest talent on the planet - my opinion - you don't have to agree!
