After 92 years of shows, New York’s famed Roseland Ballroom (built in 1922) will end its nearly century-long run with a performance from Lady Gaga. For those which will be live streamed tonight (April 7) for fans around the world unable to attend the historic event.
The show wraps up Gaga’s seven-night residency there to send the venue out with a considerable bang. Radio.com was in the house for the first night, and found the concert to be awash in the New York native’s hometown roots, coining the show “a throwback to what so many of us could only imagine it was like to see Gaga before she was Mother Monster.”
The event will be broadcast live on the dedicated site, www.GetMoreGaga.com, with festivities officially kicking off at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
Recently courting controversy with a wild vomit-filled show during this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas, the Mother Monster recently revealed that she hopes to release the follow-up to her most recent album, ARTPOP, sooner rather than later.
“I wrote a lot of songs when I was creating ARTPOP,” Gaga said during a recent interview (via NME). “When I was done working on them, I had a very specific idea of the concept for the first release of ARTPOP. There’s a strong possibility I will release another volume of ARTPOP, and I’m really hoping that it’s soon.”
The singer’s upcoming tour, which is officially dubbed “ArtRave: The ARTPOP Ball,” is set to launch in Fort Lauderdale, FL, on May 4.
