NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Columbia Records plans to release a two-disc live album later this year featuring two U.S. recordings from Barbara Streisand's current North American tour.

A Dec. 5 release date has been set for the album, whose recordings was made during the 64-year-old singer's recent concert at New York's Madison Square Garden and at her Oct. 4 record-setting show at Philadelphia's Wachovia Center, said Billboard magazine.

Streisand's opening night show at the Philadelphia locale set the 10-year-old arena's single event gross record by drawing in 16,510 people who paid more than $5.26 million to see Streisand perform.

While Columbia has not released the forthcoming album's track listing, Streisand consistently has been performing a number of her fan favorites such as "People" and "The Way We Were."

Billboard said that Streisand's tour is set to continue Friday night with a show in Toronto and will come to an end when the singer performs Nov. 20 in Los Angeles.
