Barbra committed to a five week, twenty-city tour of the U.S. in 1966. However, while Barbra was in London performing Funny Girl, she announced her pregnancy. Four months pregnant, and having just finished the London run of Funny Girl, Barbra returned to America and performed An Evening With Barbra Streisand in only four cities: Newport, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Chicago.

Although the order and selection varied at each venue, below is Barbra's set list for her 1966 concert tour:

Above: The photo caption for this shot reads: “Holding her toy poodle Sadie, [Streisand] left New York's La Guardia Airport for the beginning of her new concert tour in a Jet-Commander named Barbra's Second Hand Rose, a sleek, twin-engine executive jet aircraft ... The entertainer plans a concert Saturday night in Atlanta, Ga. and another several days later in Chicago, Ill. As an answer to the airlines strike, Miss Streisand plans to use her jet so she can return home each evening after her engagement.”

Below: A Special Bulletin from the Barbra Streisand Fan Club about the 1966 concerts. Barbra's sister, Roz Kind, was in charge of the Fan Club and signed her name to the bulletin.
