Barbra Streisand has announced a European tour which will mark seven years since the notoriously anxious performer took to the stage in Europe.

The 70-year-old singer and actress, who recently starred as a Jewish mother in the film Guilt Trip, will commence her Barbra Streisand Live tour in London at the 02 Arena on June 1.

The Funny Girl star will be accompanied by a full orchestra and guests including composer Chris Botti, her son Jason Gould and sister Roslyn Kind.

Following a concert in Paris, Ms Streisand is expected to perform for the first time in Cologne and Amsterdam , with additional venues to be announced.

The Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner has already confirmed a performance in Israel for President Shimon Peres’ 90th birthday.
