Roseland Ballroom Goes Out With A Gaga

by

The lights of NYC’s historic Roseland Ballroom will permanently fade to black after Lady Gaga’s performance tonight. She concludes her seven-day residency, and the Roseland Ballroom goes out with a Gaga. Roseland can squeeze only 3,500 people under its historic roof, so Gaga collaborated with Verizon Wireless to live stream the final show tonight on GetMoreGaga.com at 9 p.m. ET.

The legendary venue located at 239 West 52nd St. was around for nearly 58 years, and originally opened its doors to rowdier rock and pop musicians, such as Madonna, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Metallica, Radiohead, and many more. The reason for Roseland’s closing is said to be its  low-occupancy limit which appears to have financially taken its toll amid competition from larger and newer venues around the city.

Gaga puts Roseland to bed with her risque outfits, her occasional profanity-laced dialogue, and most importantly an outstanding performance. Lady Gaga shouted to her crowd of “Little Monsters” “We’ve grown up together haven’t we?, “But you’re still wasted and you’re still having fun.” (Mashable.com) She closes the show with songs from The FameBorn This Way, and Artpop. 

We say good-bye to Roseland Ballroom but will never forget the iconic musical memories made on its stage.
