Barbra Streisand will return home to Brooklyn on her new tour supporting the upcoming album “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.”

Streisand, who made her first public performance in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center in 2012, will return to the arena on Aug. 11 and 13, as part of a nine-city national tour in August. The tour will celebrate Streisand’s unmatched feat of landing a No. 1 album in each of the past six decades by including hits from those decades as well as songs from the new album. (Streisand’s last album “Partners” hit No. 1 in 2014 to set the record.)

Tickets will be $104.50-$615.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. May 25 through Ticketmaster. Included with the ticket will be a copy of “Encore,” when the duets album is released after the tour.

American Express cardholders can purchase pre-sale tickets through Ticketmaster starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
