DETROIT (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Well, so much for that: Metro Detroit won't be getting a visit from Barbra Streisand, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Citing slow ticket sales, the classic-pop diva has canceled her scheduled Oct. 18 concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills. In a statement released late Friday, tour promoter Michael Cohl described Detroit as "the only city with a lagging response" as the unretired Streisand sets to embark on her first full U.S. tour since 1994.
With official ticket prices topping $750 — and online resellers peddling seats for more than $1,700 — Streisand's Palace show was far and away the priciest metro Detroit concert event scheduled this year.
Ticketholders who paid with a credit card through Ticketmaster will automatically be credited their purchase amount. They'll also receive an e-mail alerting them to Streisand's offer of an $85 transportation credit on tickets for her concerts in Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 7 and Toronto on Oct. 17. Fans who paid cash can receive refunds at their place of purchase.
