After a few quiet years, Barbra Streisand is once again about to engulf the world - in some of the best ways. Whether because she has turned 70, seeks visibility to support Democrats in an election year, or is just plain restless, Streisand has returned. She opened her new Back to Brooklyn 12-city concert tour at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday, released her new album, Release Me , on Tuesday, will be back in movie theaters this fall with a film titled The Guilt Trip , and is the subject of a dishy new William J. Mann biography, Hello, Gorgeous: Becoming Barbra Streisand, out this week.

Finally, something even worse than another concert tour by New Kids on the Block. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming out of their shells. Unfortunately, it's not in preparation for a nice snapper soup. "Coming out of their shells" is turtle talk for "gettin' funky. " Now that they've mutated into a rock band, it's also the name of the ubiquitous, crime-fighting terrapins' 40-city concert tour, coming soon to a venue near you. Parents everywhere have Pizza Hut to thank for this.

One day soon, a prisoner will be freed from the clutches of a murderous totalitarian government, and a piece of his freedom will be owed to anyone who has purchased Reebok athletic shoes. Reebok is footing the bill for Amnesty International's worldwide rock music tour to raise money for the protection of human rights throughout the world. The tour includes a stop Sept. 19 at JFK Stadium. These days, it seems, you can't go to a yard sale without encountering a corporate sponsor.

It's your chance to "shriek and be chic. " That's how Morton Downey Jr. describes his non-televised appearance at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Civic Center's Pennsylvania Hall. "With me, people don't have to be frustrated or silent anymore. They don't have to whisper. No one is hearing the voices of the middle class. But I am listening. " For the past six months, in addition to taping his syndicated "The Morton Downey Jr. Show" (broadcast at 10 p.m. weeknights on Channel 17), Downey has taken to the road for what he insists on calling a "concert tour.

Bridges to Babylon The Rolling Stones (Virgin) For those who've feared that rock and roll music will lead you straight to hell, the Rolling Stones have always been around to offer comfort and (tongue-in-cheek) assurance that, well, it really will. The road to ruin begins with almost every Stones song we know and love, from "Paint It Black" and "Satisfaction" on down. And so it is again with "Bridges to Babylon," a new Stones concert tour and 13-song CD designed to lead you - sometimes gleefully, other times grousingly - to the dark side.

Can life begin anew at age 49, after you've hit the top of your game with a slew of TV sitcoms and dramas, feature films and critically acclaimed West End (London) and New York stage roles in the likes of "Barnum," "Phantom of the Opera" and the infamous "No Sex Please, We're British"? For Michael Crawford, the dashing British actor/comedian who's been reborn as a stand-up singer, the answer is a resounding yes. While stripped of the makeup, the rich theatrical accouterments he utilized in 1,300-plus performances as the eerily romantic (and much honored)

Ringo Starr may yet get the answer to that oft-sung question, "What would you do if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me?" The Beatle in the back, the man who quite possibly got the best break in history when original drummer Pete Best was dumped from the band, will be appearing this summer in a concert tour, his first since the Beatles broke up in 1970. The tour, announced yesterday by Starr, is slated to include Atlantic City, on Aug. 6 at the Grandstand Under the Stars, and Philadelphia, on Aug. 9 at the Mann Music Center.

Yesshows '91, the concert tour that began in Atlantic City Friday and will reach the Spectrum tomorrow night, is a new kind of rock-and-roll gamble for Electric Factory Concerts. For the first time in its history, the promotion outfit (EFC) - which has dominated Philadelphia's pop concert scene since the mid-'70s, and in recent years has successfully launched traveling theatrical presentations - is producing an entire rock tour. With the move, EFC joins the small circle of North American promoters considered by superstar groups as they turn, increasingly, to a single company to oversee an extended tour.

EVERY ONCE in a while we have an argument in the Tattle offices about the music business. Do the more senior acts take in more money because 1) They have the largest, most diverse fan base? or 2) Baby boomers are the only group willing to spend big money for concert tickets? or 3) Younger music fans would rather listen to Spotify? We don't have one good answer (it's probably a combination of things), but the latest list of Pollstar's Top 20 Global Concert Tours again shows it's a goodie to be an oldie.

Art of Dixie? The  Dixie Chicks , Tattle's favorite country trio, is returning to Europe for their first headlining tour since lead singer and Texan  Natalie Maines  said during the  George W. Bush  administration, "We're ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas. " The line went over well in London, but the Chicks got hammered on American country radio, they took flak for being un-American, CDs were destroyed, concert dates were canceled and the threesome made only one more (albeit great)

STYX is milking their Philly tour-stop hiccup. Earlier this month, two of the classic rockers' tour buses caught fire while they were parked in Northern Liberties on the day of their concert with Foreigner at Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center. Thankfully, no one was hurt. But why not turn some classic-rock lemons into classic-rock lemonade? I hear that the band is now incorporating the incident into a cover of the Doors ' "Light My Fire," including at a recent tour stop in Minneapolis.

SHARON OSBOURNE told the New York Post that she is quitting as a judge on "America's Got Talent" at the end of this season because she is furious at NBC over firing her son, Jack, from the post-Olympics ridiculosity (yes, we made up a word) "Stars Earn Stripes," because he has multiple sclerosis. The producers of "Stars Earn Stripes" not only deny that Jack was fired because of his MS, but they also say he was never hired to appear on the show. In "Stars Earn Stripes," so-called "stars" will team with actual military personnel in military challenges to win money for armed-forces personnel.

NEW YORK - As deliberate as Audra McDonald is about picking songs for her concerts, what she says in between singing them is anything but considered. "I just talk, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is not good at all," she says, laughing. "I find that keeps me at my most honest, which then keeps me in the right frame of mind for each song. " The four-time Tony Award winner has even surprised herself by suddenly talking about shoes or what she ate for lunch. "For some people, it's like, 'Oh, dear.

BERLIN - Is the continent big enough for both of them? The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, on overlapping tours of European festivals, crossed paths (almost) at the Dresdner Musikfestpiele, the former performing Friday, the latter arriving Saturday. And it was not for the first time: In the Zurich airport roughly a week ago, the Philadelphians were lined up to leave as the Chicagoans were arriving - on the same chartered plane. Looking over the two tours, one cannot help asking who got what.
