New York City's Roseland Ballroom will close next year.
A spokesperson confirmed that the venue will cease operating in April of next year.
"The owners of 239 West 52nd Street have operated the Roseland Ballroom for over three decades," the representative said in a statement. "Managing Roseland has been a labor of love, which is why the owners have deferred major changes for all these years. Though final plans for the property will not be made until next year, redevelopment of the property is the likely outcome. Roseland will cease operations at the end of April 2014."
The venue holds around 3,000 people and is one of the best places to see a concert in the Big Apple.
We are seriously bummed, as are our NYC staffers. We need more concert venues, not LESS.
