Miami- An indignant concert-goer threw his beverage over singing legend Barbra Streisand after she criticized US President George W Bush during her Miami concert Monday night, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday. Streisand, 64, has been repeatedly heckled during her current tour, her first in 12 years, in which the well-known liberal activist devotes a small interlude to blasting the policies of the current government.

According to the report, a second heckler began harassing her following the soaking and was escorted from the arena as he shouted abuse at her.

Streisand appeared unaffected by the incidents, which come in the run-up to a closely fought mid-term election, saying that some people would do better to buy her records than come to her shows.
