Streisand is Concert Queen

Billboard reports that her 20 concerts has grossed more than $92 million and set house records in 14 of the 16 arenas. Also, in the 2 arenas that she didn't break the record, she already holds the records in the top spot (MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas), and the top two spots (Madison Square Garden, New York City). Her performances will be released as a double CD titled Barbra Streisand Live on February 2007.
TicketLiquidator.com, the leading source for the most comprehensive selection of tickets at the lowest prices, today announced the top ten highest selling concerts, venues, sporting events and theatrical productions of 2006. Revenue data is based on TicketNetwork exchange statistics from December 1st, 2005 to November 30th, 2006.

"Fans are increasingly making TicketLiquidator.com their online ticket destination of choice, especially for must-see events," said Donald Vaccaro, CEO, TicketLiquidator.com. "Our high level of customer service, combined with low prices and the most extensive ticket inventory available online, is why customers keep returning to TicketLiquidator.com for all of their ticket needs."

Broadway's popular "Wicked" tops the theatre rankings as the highest selling show on TicketLiquidator.com with more than triple the sales of any other production. "Wicked's" home on Broadway, the George Gershwin Theatre, the largest theater on Broadway, is ranked first among venues with the most ticket sales. Still a newcomer to Broadway, "Jersey Boys" is second on the list. The musical won four 2006 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and continues to be a must-see production among theater-goers. The "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" is the third most popular theatrical production on TicketLiquidator.com.

Fans of the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees hit ticket sales out of the ball park with rankings first and second respectively in the sports ticket sales category. The legendary rival teams generated more than double the combined ticket sales of the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs and the Denver Broncos.
On the concert circuit, Barbra Streisand fans clearly prefer TicketLiquidator.com as their online source for tickets. Coast to coast, ticket sales for Babs' concerts were more than double the ticket sales of American Idol Live!, the popular Cheetah Girls, and the Rolling Stones. The husband-wife team of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill ranked second, ahead of Madonna's "Confessions Tour" which ranked third.
