Lady Gaga Concerts to Close New York's Famed Roseland Ballroom
When word came last month that famed NYC venue the Roseland Ballroom would be shutting its doors for good in April, it was a shock. The Ballroom--which has seen acts as diverse as Beyonce, the Rolling Stones, Green Day, Metallica, Radiohead, Nicki Minaj, and Fugazi take its storied stage--opened in 1919, and there was no reason to think it wouldn't go on forever. Now, comes news that it will live forever ... in the hearts and minds of of Lady Gaga's Little Monsters, at least, who will no doubt clamor to snatch up all the tickets for the just-announced four-show run their ARTPOP God will play to see the place off, March 28, 30, 31 and April 2. Tickets go on sale next Monday, November 25, at 10 a.m. Full press release (including ticket prices) after the jump.
