Barbra postponed four scheduled shows (May 25, 27, 29 and 31) in Anaheim when it was announced she was suffering from viral tracheolaryngitis.
“I feel terrible that these postponements may cause severe scheduling problems for so many fans who have waited so long for me to perform,” Streisand said in a statement. “My fans deserve the best I can give, and I remain committed to that ideal.”
After recovering, Streisand took to the stage in Anaheim on June 2, 1994 with a Top Ten List of Reasons Why She Didn't Perform (à la David Letterman):
10. I always wanted to spend four hot, muggy days in Anaheim in the middle of July.
9. I was trying to work out Dan Rostenkowski's* plea bargain.
8. I didn't know it would take a whole week to dust all this furniture.
7. I was at home waiting for the cable guy.
6. I hurt my voice yelling, "Yabba Dabba Doo!"
5. I wanted to get Barbra Streisand tongue depressors into the boutiques.
4. There was a shoe sale at Nordstrom's.
3. I thought my concert tour needed more publicity.
2. It took me three days to read Dan Quayle's new book—and four days to correct the spelling.
1. Every time I started to drive here, I got sidetracked and drove to Disneyland instead.
* Rostenkowski was indicted on corruption charges in 1994 for his key role in the House post office scandal.
Note: Comedienne Elayne Boosler wrote Streisand's comedy material. On her website: “In 1995 [Boosler] wrote city by city (including London) customized material for Barbra Streisand to use in her show on her summer tour. She did this as a favor as she does not write for other people’s acts, but the four months of daily work was very satisfying when it was so well received. Almost the entire New York monologue that she wrote for Streisand was quoted glowingly on the cover of the New York Times entertainment section, and part of the political material in particular was quoted everywhere. Also, a top ten list that she wrote for Streisand to explain her postponed Los Angeles area shows was so funny that it was printed in its entirety on the cover of the Los Angeles Times entertainment section, excerpted in newspapers across the country, and run on CNN and all the networks...”
After a string of successful shows in New York, Barbra returned to the West Coast to perform four shows at Anaheim's Arrowhead Pond that wrapped up her 24-show tour.
Her final Anaheim show was videotaped as a television special.
