Iconic New York City venue Roseland Ballroom is closing its doors for good in 2014, which bums us out immensely. But the venue is going out in style, as NYC native Lady Gaga is shutting down her hometown venue with a four-night residency.
Gaga will play the final shows EVER at the Roseland on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2.
Back in August 2008, before Gaga's first single "Just Dance" became a No. 1 hit, she was stopped on the streets of New York while shopping and asked by a photographer if he could take her picture. Of course she obliged.
When he asked who she was, she replied "I'm Lady Gaga. A singer/songwriter. You're going to know me one day."
And know her we do!
Almost six years later, Gaga has repurposed the image to celebrate her coming up as a New York artist and the history of what it means to be closing down this venue.
It's vintage! Check it out. It makes us sad to say RIP to the Roseland, but we see the cyclical nature of music, too, as Gaga was a little-known at this time and now look at our gal!
Have you ever seen a show at NYC's Roseland? If so, tell us about it!
