Gaga to Close Out New York's Iconic Roseland Ballroom

By: Michael Regula

Lady Gaga will close out the legendary Roseland Ballroom with four shows to support her 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 music’s most iconic performers from Madonna to the Rolling Stones. Gaga is promising a "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.
