Oh my. I’ve seen some wonderful gigs at Roseland Ballroom and am sad to see it go.
Founded in my hometown of Philly in 1917, it made its new home in 1919, where it was once a “Whites Only” club. Now, New Yorkers and New York tourists who love music and seeing their favorite artists live on stage will bid it farewell next year with none other than Lady Gaga. She will perform at the cultural institution in late March (28th, 30th, 31st) to early April (2nd), providing the very last shows that one will ever see there.
General public tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster this coming Monday, November 25th, at 10 am EST, but if you’re a part of the Little Monster community, like myself, presale tickets will be available to a random selection of members tomorrow, November 21st. Those with Citibank credit cards are also privy to presale tickets on November 22nd at 10 am EST.
Tickets will be $50.00 a pop. I just may have to break the bank to bid my farewell to Roseland and say hello to Gaga!
