Concertgoer pelts Babs with beverage
Miami Herald Staff Report

Barbra Streisand's politics didn't find a wholly agreeable crowd during her Monday concert at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise.

As Babs traded political barbs with a George W. Bush imitator, a fan of the songstress who apparently disagreed with her politics pelted her with a beverage. And as her anti-GOP riff ended, another man in the crowd found himself being escorted out of the center as he shouted at Streisand.

Streisand shrugged both incidents off, saying some people would do better to buy her records than come to her shows.

A similar scenario unfolded during Streisand's concert earlier this month at Madison Square Garden in New York, during which the singer used the F-word in shouting down a heckler.

While I can't stand barbra -- her acting, singing, or her politics...I still think this "fan" was wrong to throw something at her on stage.

Throwing stuff at the stage is a time honored way of the audience expressing its disfavor.

Yep. That's why you'll see chickenwire in front of the stage at the finer music venues.

Yeah, I believe in the past rotten tomatoes was used.

I can understand the feelings, the audience paid for her to to entertain them, not to have her lecture the audience on her politics.

Aparrently this is pretty common for her shows these days.
