At that point a disgruntled fan threw ice at the 64-year-old star, according to website TMZ.com. … Both the heckler and the ice thrower were escorted out of the venue, which caused Streisand to quip, "If you want to hear my songs, buy my albums and stay at home," [Yeah why would you go to a concert and expect someone to sing… in other words don't get bilked by her ridiculous ticket prices… guess these aren't really concerts, they are political events.. maybe some fans will sue for false advertising?… see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
