Seeing Barbra Streisand live


Ali and Jenny outside the O2 I am writing this sitting on an incredibly hard metal bench at Westminster Underground Station! "Why?" I hear you cry! Because I'm homeward bound after a cracking night out with my sister, where we were entertained right royally by Ms Barbra Streisand – boy can she still sing! 🙂

Before I give you a little insight into the evening itself, I'd like to thank you very much for sharing so eloquently your memories of gigs/live performances, past and present! And what an eclectic mix of performers! From Bon Jovi to The Bay City Rollers, the Beatles and even Shirley Bassey!

I loved reading them, and hope you did too!  Oh, and Colin's gig at The Horns was a mighty success, and I have to say hello and thank you to Jackie and Dave for reading about it here, and coming along to support him 🙂

Back to Barbra! My sister, Jenny, and I have always shared a love of this Brooklyn songbird, but never dreamed we'd have the chance to see her.

Our childhood consisted of singing our way regularly through the entire song list from Funny Girl, Hello Dolly, Yentl – to name but a few – and we surprised ourselves when realising that we hadn't forgotten a single word! 

Barbra's viewThere we 21,000 people at the O2, and so this is what Ms Streisand walked out onstage to face…terrifying, eh? In fact, she admitted to giving up live performances for over 27 years having forgotten the words for three songs in 1963!

Last night the autocue was firmly set up in the rafters and she was word perfect 🙂 But, more than that, she was note perfect. Every single word was as clear as crystal and her first song, from the 1970s film of the same name, reduced Jenny and I to tears…"On  a clear day, you can see forever"

I was back in my bedroom, 14 years old, singing to my reflection and truly believing that I could blow the clouds away and see forevermore. Not only were we treated to Ms Streisand's vocal talents, but also those of her son and her sister, and then we were serenaded with a fabulous duet on trumpet and violin (not forgetting the 60-strong orchestra)!

She took us back to Brooklyn, moved seamlessly from stage to studio recordings and held us all in the palm of her hand. 50 years of making music and, for Jenny and I, creating memories that we will last forever 🙂

To be honest, I have been more than a little spoiled over the last few weeks as, in addition to Barbra, I took Colin to see Jersey Boys in the West End as his birthday treat. We did cut it a tad fine though. Having had supper first, we arrived at the theatre just as they called one minute to curtain up!

It was a wonderful show though, although COMPLETELY different to War Horse, which we'd been lucky enough to see the week before. Debbie Greenwood's husband, Paul, had two spare tickets and so we met them in town and were completely transported by the sensational animatronics that brought to life so cleverly and sensitively, the brutality of the First World War.

The horses are created like a kind of wicker cage and people move them from inside. Seriously, after about five minutes you believe they are real! Must be exhausting for the puppeteers (I think they're still called that although these horses would knock Punch and Judy into a tin hat!) :)  Again, well worth travelling into town – thank you Mr Coia!

Ali wearing 3D glassesI moved from stage to small screen last week when Lucy visited me and we decided to immerse ourselves in Baz Lehrmann's stunning remake of 'The Great Gatsby'. We donned our 3D glasses (quite fetching don't you think?) and were treated to an incredibly glitzy and glamorous snapshot of life for America's rich and wealthy in the 20s.

The costumes and jewellery were unbelievable, and I thought Carey Mulligan was completely convincing but honestly, there will only ever be one Gatsby for me: Robert Redford…sigh… 🙂

Down to earth with a bump and my appointment at The Marsden. In short, I will have to have three operations over a six-month period, and hopefully then things will be a little easier. The surgeon has said not to set my hopes too high but, with fat transfer to help with the incredibly thin skin and different implants, I should feel more comfortable. That'll probably be July, but I'll let you know and thanks, as always, for all your lovely comments and words of support 🙂

Houses of Parliament Embankment at night

Well, you'll be glad to know that the train finally arrived and I headed home, but not before I'd taken this picture of the Houses of Parliament in the sunshine 🙂 Beautiful, eh? Looks pretty good at night too – as Jenny and I discovered when we walked back to our hotel :)  I have swapped my hard metal bench for a somewhat softer seat at Heathrow airport and am waiting with Colin to fly to Nashville :). It's an early start so we're both a bit sleepy but excited. I will take lots of photos as always and report back on our return!

At least I leave you with sunshine for at least the next few days and hopefully more to come! Pretty warm in Tennessee I hear, so y'all take good care and I'll be back before you know it :).

With my love,

Ali xx

    Dear Ali
    Sorry I couldn’t get to Colin’s gig after all. I’m finishing my antibiotics this week, so keep your fingers crossed that I don’t have yet another recurrence. And I’m keeping mine crossed that your ops go well. I’m sure the results will be to your satisfaction.
    Take care,
    Chris xx

    Morning Ali…first things first, I hear you are having a fat transfer for your op..I am more than willing to donate some of mine!! Three procedures in 6 months sounds tough but I am sure you will cope admirably as you have always done so in the past with the love and support of all your family, friends and us Bloggers.
    You’re probably in a plane somewhere over the Atlantic by now so best wishes for an amazing trip. YeeHa!!
    So Barbra can still bang out a good tune then..a bit like our own Dame wonderful to be taken back in time and ignite memories of old and make new ones at the same time. I bet she had some fabulous frocks on…
    Me and my sisters took my mum to see Jersey Boys a few years ago before she had her second operation and it was absolutely fabulous. We were allup dancing, even mum who remembered most of the words to the songs (but not necessarily in the right order but considering her brain surgery two years before that had damaged her memory it was brilliant for us girls to see. Isnt music a wonderfull therapy? I worked some years ago now in a unit within school for kids who were on the verge of exclusion and our unit manager was doing a music therapy course and the kids loved to experiment with instruments and create pieces of music which gave them a sense of achievement. Brilliant!
    I haven’t yet seen War Horse on stage but watched the film at hope as I knew i would probably be an emotional wreck at the end…I sat and watched it early one morning when everyone was still asleep and I had the remote control to myself and didnt have to fight anyone else for it. A vcracking film and truly thought provoking and moving moved me not to just tears but hysterical sobs!! I am sure the play is brilliant; I have seen a documentary about the making of the puppets which was fascinating.
    So half term last week and now looking forward to 7 weeks of school then the summer..ha ha, whats happened to the weather. I have a nice colour but think its windburn! Cricket has been manic. I think I should take note of Michael Portilo’s programme Great Railway Journeys and make Marys Great Motorway Journeys!! Over the last two weeks we’ve been to Watford, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bexley, Sidup, Leeds ( near leeds Castle Maidstone), Twickenham ( played on Twickenham Green which is like playing cricket on a large roundabout) and Chatham in addition to matches more locally (ie less than an hours drive!) in Herne Bay, Canterbury, Whitstable, Ramsgate and Broadstairs. I am off to Greenwich after school on Friday for a match with Chloe…a great journey from Westgate on a Friday evening!! I was born in Greenwich so it will be just like going home..not!! Only had three days off cricket in the last 14 so the car is permanently full of cricket bags, chairs and several blankets and my leopard print luxury Slanket. Its been so cold. the North East wind has a wind chill of at least -7!!!
    At least the sun shone for my friend and her family at the funeral of her dad, it was very emotional and I managed to hold it together until the end when I read the poem he had written before he died. It was very beautifull, postive and embraced the life he had and those that he leaves behind.
    So, looking outside its cloudy, the washing on the line is billowing and hanging on for dear life even with my super storm proof pegs so its gonns be Emu boots and a thick fleece on the neach this morning. Have a wonderfull holiday in warm Nashville and give my love to Dolly! Much love Mary xx

    Morning Ali, Wishing you a wonderful trip to Tennessee/hope you had a wonderful trip to Tennessee depending on when you catch up with us. All your theatre visits sounded amazing and as you say were experiences to last forever. Last night we went to see two very talented Australians play Tubular Bells “for two”, I was not a fan of this back in the day, however, it was a great night; these boys were so beyond and totally deserved their standing ovations. The downside is that my lovely man now wants to play the drums and having found out this week that he can retire, five years earlier than expected, is planning the next chapter – I’m saying absolutely nothing which is very rare. Finally, I’m so pleased that the surgeons may have a solution to the implant issue, even if it does entail three operations, but you don’t look as though you have any fat to transfer. On the other hand I’ve got a fair amount to give away for free which sounds disgusting but you’re welcome to it! Love from Jo x

    Hi Alison,
    I so love to read your blogs as you have such a way with descriptions and so it was with Barbra. Fabulous – I was almost there and so wish I was! Ah memories indeed you will treasure them forever.
    I’m glad you enjoyed Jersey Boys – I saw it about 3 years ago. Mine was a present from my son and I loved it. I haven’t seen Warhorse but I understand it is going on tour later this year I think so I hope to get to see it then.
    Sorry to hear about the ops but as a means to an end I do hope that they will improve things for you in the long run Ali.
    By now you will be in Nashville – I hope you and Colin are enjoying every minute of it.Its certainly a once in a lifetime holiday.
    Denise xx

    Oh my Ali what a ball you have been having and all before your jolly!!! Great to hear about – I saw the photo and thought that does not look like Tennessee!! Looking forward to hearing all about your time away.
    Not good to hear about what is to come for you but am sure once the three ops are over you will have so much more comfort that it will be worth it and it will be another chapter for the book!!! We will also be with you in spirit if not actually sitting in the hospital holding your hand.
    Today my daughter and I went on a Segway jolly. She has been with her husband and dad before but I have never and we had such a ball. Took some getting used to but once I had got going I loved it and squealed most of the way round!!! Well recommended if one is near any of you.
    It has been too hot for Annie to wear her wig so she has gone for it and is not looking back – kind people are saying she looks like a model with such short (very) hair and that is lovely for her.
    Just sending a big hug to Tricia and hope that things are not too bad this weekend – I have been thinking of you and your daughter. Do keep nipping into Ali’s old blogs as quite honestly I gained more knowledge and comfort from them than anything else and could not have managed without them – I constantly nipped in and out and was so grateful that Ali had shared that most stressful time with us. Love to you all Jilly xx

    Hi Alison, WOW you and your sister must have had a ball the chance to see her in concert OMG!! must say best concert i’v been to was Rod Stewart and he was there right in front off me that’s how close I was, he’s another one that gives it all amazing! always wanted to see the Bee Gees but I guess that will never happen now 🙁 and keep hinting to my colin to take me to see Bon Jovi, no luck ( yet ) wish I could have been there to hear your colin that would have been great:) Back to your surgery hope all goes well for you, you are so brave! I sent you an email hope you got it? and sent a picture from the wedding! have a fantastic time in America with colin can’t wait to hear all about it, and if you are also going where I think your going say a big Hi from me please, thank you! have an amazing trip, love as always Rhona xx

    Hi Ali,
    I have no idea what is going on with the blogs but my last three have not been posted so I am so out of sequence!!!I did wish all the best for Colin’s gig and I read it went very well.I do think it does our offspring the world of good to see us do something a little different and give them a surprise,especially when it is such a nice one as seeing dad perform live for the first time.Glad you enjoyed the Barbra Streisand concert.She has always been one of my favourites both as a singer and an actress.SOOOOO many good films with my favourite being ‘The way we were’It is absolutely guaranteed to make me weep buckets of tears and then feel tons better afterwards.My live concerts include,The Hollies,Alan Price (Who was at the same school as me and just a few years older )Georgie Fame and Francoise Hardy.As you can probably tell,I am just a few years older than you!!!!!On my wish list of ‘to see’ live,include R.E.M who sadly I won’t see now having disbanded last year,and Dolly Parton.Her concerts are also very expensive,but my daughter has promised to treat me on her next tour,which I hope will be next year.Meanwhile enjoy Tennessee and do take care of yourself.Hope this one gets through.At least I notice a couple of other people having the same problem.

    Hi ali
    I just don’ t understand how you fit everything in to your life. Very jealous that you saw Barbara Streisand . I saw the moody blues on Friday night. They were brilliant brought back so memories from my youth! Molly is crawling all over the place. Poppy was 3 yesterday. They grow up so quickly. So sorry to hear you have the operations in front of you but hopefully once they are behind you you will feel much better. As you know the whole of Ali’s army will be with you every step of the way. Hope you have a fabulous trip.
    Love Elaine x

    Hi Ali,
    Glad you enjoyed Barbara Streisand’s concert. Hope you’re having a fantastic time in Nashville too.
    Sorry to hear you’ll need three further operations, but to know that you’ll feel far more comfortable afterwards will make it all worthwhile.
    Best wishes to those who are facing difficult and challenging times.
    Love from Sue Radford xx

    Hi Chris, vey much hoping you won’t have a recurrence and that the tabs will have done the job for you :). We’ve had a marvellous time away and are just waiting for the flight home! Fab Internet access at the airport! Take care, and thanks for keeping in touch, love Ali x

    Howdy doody Mary! Waiting at Nashville airport for the flight home after a cracking trip which I will write and let you know all about it. Lovely to catch up on all your news, and I very much envy you seeing Dame Shirley… Same category as Barbra for powerful female singers :). I remembered you telling me about taking your mum to see Jersey boys and the guy who i played Frankie made an appearance at the end of Barb’s concert too! It was a fab show though wasn’t it :). Interesting to hear you talk about music therapy.. Colin and I would by much agree that there is a definite healing/calming influence in some music, and I’m sure you saw evidence of that in your work. Re War Horse I think the film was a great deal more upsetting than the stage show…. I too cried buckets! I very much look forward to reading ‘Marys Great Motorway Journeys’ … I can’t begin to imagine the number of miles you travel in a week while supporting your kids and their cricket :). Well done you! I’m sorry the weather changed for the worse at home, but I will endeavour to bring a ray or sunshine back with me – it has been STONKINGLY hot here! Take care and thanks for writing as always, Ali xxx

    Ooooh Jo… Drums?! That has to be one of the more unusual choices for a retirement I’ve heard of, just make sure if it goes ahead you get the quiet drum kits where the player only hears himself through headphones! But as my Nanny used to say “least said soonest mended” …. He may well change his mind, so I think you keeping quiet may be the best plan 🙂 it’s been great to have a complete change here in Tennessee and so I haven’t been thinking of the surgery much, but it will be good as I can’t swim the crawl or breast stroke and laying on my tummy is almost impossible! That said the top half of my back is pretty brown from driving with the top down on my Mustang! yay! Such fun, will be writing about it just as soon as I’m home. I hope all else is good with you and that you’ve managed to see your daughter recently? Take care, and keep in touch…its always good to hear from you, love Ali xxx

    Hi Ali,
    So pleased to here about the Barbara Streisand’s concert. I do think you are so lucky, she’s one of my fav’s. Hope all your opps will go well and that you will be your old self in record time. You will love Nashville. We done the tour last year taking in all the major places. New Orleans,Memphis Laffayette,Gracelands.and others. Have a great time Lyn xxxxxxxxxxxx

    Hi there Denise, and thanks so much for your lovely comments. Delighted that you enjoy the blogs and it’s great to share our showtime experiences! I hope very much that you get the chance to see Warhorse when it goes on tour.. perhaps your son would take you? Colin and I had a wonderful time in Tennessee, and I will fill you on it all next week – will also post my photos from this blog today (Monday) – nightmare with my e mail before we left. Think my first op will be in the next couple of weeks, but I have such great memories of the last 10 days I’m not thinking about it… much 🙂 My love to you, and do keep in touch – it’s great to hear from you, Ali xx

    Hello there Jilly – always good to open my blog page and find your messages 🙂 I feel very spoiled and delighted that my Christmas treat to Colin was such a success… We did so much, and have some incredible film and photos of our time there and I’ll share all of it with you later this week. Yes, apologies for the lack of photos on this last blog, but I will get them posted today (big thanks to my editor for his patience!) and then it may make a little more sense! Nightmare when technology goes wrong eh?! So glad to hear that Annie felt able to go without her wig, and now she has, it won’t be long before it’s rarely used. I found some photos of myself when I first went on air without my wig, and was surprised at how short my hair was! I must dig out the photo of me before the BCC Evening at QVC without my wig…Still gives me a lump in my throat 🙂 So glad again that you are now helping Tricia through this difficult time, and I promise I will continue to work at putting my book together… I hope my blog will be as helpful to her daughter as you say it was to Annie… she too is proof that we can get through the difficult times.. all of us 🙂 My love to you, Ali xx

    Rhona I have to say both Jenny and couldn’t quite believe we WERE going to see her until she came out on stage! 🙂 It was just extraordinary – very much the same as you seeing Rod Stewart I’m sure. I have always enjoyed his music but particularly the Swing album he put together 🙂 If your Colin wants to get ticket to Bon Jovi but doesn’t want to go, I’ll come with you – Love him!!! 🙂 And if my Colin ever comes to Scotland to play I’ll make sure you meet up with us 🙂 I did get your e mail, but had real hassle with my system just prior to leaving and so couldn’t reply. That’s the reason there were no photos with the blog either apart from one! I had wanted to get photos of Basal to Charlie for his Destination Gems Show last Tuesday, but my e mail account failed, so that was frustrating too! All good now though, and I did indeed say Hi when I visited Graceland.. I real insight into the man himself and his home. I hope that you’ve had a good week and thanks as always for keeping in touch, love Ali xx

    Hello there Martin, and yes Jenny and I did indeed enjoy the concert.. everything and more we had hoped it would be 🙂 Sam has been camping this weekend, and has nearly finalised on a flat, and Jack has been with us today, and is staying over. Lucy’s marriage sadly ended last summer, but she and Richard have moved on with their lives and are, I believe, happier for taking separate paths… thank you for asking though. I hope this week treats you well, love Ali x

    Oh Edna, how annoying for you having taken the time to write your comments, that they didn’t get through! I will ask Mark to look into it for you 🙂 Colin’s gig did indeed go very well, and you’re right, his children were really chuffed to see their Dad up there singing his songs and entertaining everyone… a proud moment. Nice that we share a love of Barbra and her many talents. I have to say that Prince of Tides is the film that creases me each time I watch it, and the title song is one I have asked to have played the day I step off this mortal coil… ‘Places that belong to me’… Beautiful… 🙂 Dolly Parton was very evident in Nashville, and such a lovely lady. Her interview with Michael Parkinson was always one of my favourites. I hope that you get to see her sing live one day…. I will tell you all about our holiday later this week once I’ve collated the photos, and thank you again for persevering and posting this comment! Love Ali xx

    Do you know Elaine, when I read back over some of these blogs, I wonder too how I get the time! My mum did say that perhaps I shouldn’t mention all that I do, as there are some people who don’t even get ONE holiday a year!… I do apologise if that’s the case, but to be honest my feeling nowadays is to crack on with things while we can.. we never know what’s round the corner..:) Wonderful that you got to see the Moody Blues – lovely singers! I can’t believe that Poppy was 3 yesterday, and that Molly is crawling! Incredible how quickly times moves on… This time 2 years ago I was halfway through my chemo.. Am trying not to think of the ops, but am soooooo grateful to have this blog to keep in touch with you all – it makes all the difference knowing that Ali’s Army are with me.. 🙂 Thank you, and love to you too, Ali xx

    Hi there Sue, good as always to hear from you, and I do hope that things are OK with you? I know it’s not been the easiest of years, and hope that you have love and support around you…? We had a wonderful time in Nashville, and although I’d only got half the trip planned our impromptu organising worked brilliantly! Colin had never been to the US before but he felt completely at home, and the music was fabulous! Made me realise how good his album is too! Will let you know more this week, but I do hope life is treating you well, love Ali xx

Colin is determined to go back next year come hell or high water so I’m keeping everything crossed that it all pans out 🙂 clearly we have a lot in common as you are a Streisand fan too! And yes I will always feel incredibly lucky to have had that by special evening, and to have shared it with my sister 🙂 love to you and bless you for your good wishes, Ali xxx

    Your back Ali!!! wonderful!!! and what a fab time will have been had by you both. Looking forward to some pictures and a great catch up. Do say to your mum not to worry as we love to and want to hear what you have been doing and don’t think of your holiday or jolly events news as anything but welcome to us all. It is just great to get your catch ups and hear about your family and what you and Colin have been doing or going.
    News from my family is that Annie is doing really well. She had full blood test last week and the results are brilliant – her iron is a tiny bit low but she just needs to up her diet on that and does not need tablets so the Dr and Annie were more than delighted. It looks like no long term damage has been caused by the chemo etc – although time will tell but it was the news Annie wanted to hear. The wigs have been put away for good and she keeps getting stopped from all people to say how wonderful they like her new hair style – how kind people are. Tomorrow is prize giving at school and she will go to this function in a lovely red dress with the short hair and look on top of the world. It will do two things – one to show anyone else who finds a lump or some such horror that you can look good after the treatment that you have gone through or going through and two that as she feels so good she looks so good. I am sure you will understand what I mean.
    Tricia we all do hope that everything is going as well as it can with your daughter and you and her family. Don’t forget another cycle down and it is one less for your daughter to go through. The next few weeks will be hard for all of you but see a little woolly overcoat round your daughter (like the old Readibreak advert where the boy had a red glow) to protect her and at night before you go to sleep see her phoning you up to say “today is a good day”. When we get a call like that it changes our day to one of maybe down to feeling so much better. I am sure your mum would have felt her day was better when you were able to phone and say what a good day you have had Ali.
    You will soon be on your new round of rest and recovery Ali and we will all look forward to hearing how you are getting on – July will be hear before we know it.
    Love to you and your family Jilly xx

    Hi Rhona and thank you! Exciting times ahead eh?! 🙂 We are now back from a fab time away, and if time is on my side I should complete my blog by tomorrow so it can be posted for you to read over the weekend. I do hope you had a little bit of the sunshine in Scotland – it was very hot here yesterday, but not so bright today. I’m in on Saturday and Sunday with some fab Elemis shows amongst others, so will ‘see’ you then, love Ali xx

    hello Alison, How marvellous for you to be seeing so many different places its truly great for you to now be able to get out and about and live life to the full. you have the most amazing strength and determination it gives us all so much of a feeling that when our treatments are through maybe we will be able to make plans for future events, holidays etc..
    Thank you Alison & Jilly for your kind wishes for my daughter Jan .She is having her second chemo on Friday She is having a reduced dose of Paclitaxel by half as the consultant says her side effects of parasthaesia are over what was the average she would expect. My daughter has a combo of chemo drugs and doubles the Pacitaxel with Carbaplatin .We are upset that she is having the half strength as we wanted to achieve maximum benefit.
    It’s lovely to hear that Jillys daughter has now a cute short crop of hair, it’s so exciting for them.We can’t wait.
    I go on my journey to my daughters in Portsmouth tomorrow, she is in the Royal Navy and is a nursing officer. it’s 280 miles from me each way but of course I must be with her and I can easily get down inside a day.
    many thanks and all good wishes, Tricia x
