Two Italian consumer groups, Adusbef and Codacons, want authorities to cancel Barbra Streisand`s concert in Rome next month because of excessive ticket prices. The groups urged the city and the Italian Olympic Committee to deny permission for Streisand to perform at the Stadio Flaminio on June 15. It is the 65-year-old singer`s first concert in Italy and the start of her European tour. The ticket prices, which range from just under $200 to more than $1,200, are “absurd and shameful,“ the groups said in a statement. Streisand`s monthlong European tour also includes concerts in Austria, France, Ireland and Britain.
