Lady Gaga to Close Out Roseland Ballroom in NYC
By Michael Regula
Lady Gaga will close out the Roseland Ballroom with four shows to support her new ARTPOP album, the first of which will take place on the pop superstar’s birthday, March 28. The recent concert announcement made on Gaga’s website is the first confirmation of the New York venue's closing act.
The Roseland Ballroom, originally opened in 1919, has been as its current midtown location since 1958 and has hosted almost a century of the music’s most iconic performers from Louise Armstrong to the Rolling Stones. Lady Gaga is promising “real New York theatrical affair,” to rightfully close out a venue with so much history. Current owner Laurence Ginsberg plans to tear down the low-rise, three-story structure and replace it with a 42-story high-rise building.
Tickets for all performances go on sale to the general public Monday, November 25 at 10 a.m. Eastern. The Roseland is located at 239 W. 52nd Street, between 8th Avenue and Broadway.
