Babs Rejects $100M Vegas Offer

February 9, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Barbra Streisand, a legend of the entertainment world, has turned down a $100 million dollar offer to start her own Las Vegas show.

With the departure of Celine Dion in the world of Vegas stage shows it has been a matter of speculation since 2008 who would take her place.

Bette Midler and Cher have both been contenders who failed at gaining anything like the same popularity that Celine managed to obtain.

But there were hopes that Babs would take the deal and give the city her incredible star power.

“After Celine Dion left Vegas, no one has been able to replace her. Bette Milder failed, Cher is trying, only Barbra is guaranteed to succeed,” a source revealed to Popeater.

“She’s an international star and the only performer that could make people flock to Vegas year after year.”

But Barbra was not interested and has turned down the deal.

Living proof that a real artist will work for the art and not for the money.

    Err, not true. She’s turned it down cause the money wasn’t right.

    Babs doesn’t want the Vegas gig because its more work than a summer tour – and she makes less money.

    A summer tour of 40-60 shows will make about $80-$100 million because she can play venues of 10,000 to 20,000 seats whereas the Coliseum is a measly 4500 seats meaning she has to work harder for the same audience numbers.

    Cher, Celine and Elton were each happy to do Vegas as they each wanted a break from their gruelling years-long touring schedules so were happy to settle into Vegas for 4-6 weeks at a time at less money than they get when out touring.
