Breaking: NYC's Roseland Ballroom To Close


Music lovers everywhere will soon be mourning the loss of one of New York City's most loved and biggest concert venue's, Roseland Ballroom. Although the reason has yet to be released to the public, and both Roseland and Live Nation have refused to speak on behalf of the topic, the venue is definitely set to close in April 2014, apparent in an email between owner Larry Ginsberg and executives at Live Nation that later got released to Billboard.com.

Being the venue known to host the biggest artists, from Nirvana and Radiohead in the 90′s to more recent EDM artists such as Pretty Lights and Big Gigantic, the closing has come as a shock to both attenders of the venue as well as the artists that planned to play or had previously played on its stage. From its original roots as a dance club in 1919 to its later use as an ice rink and now its current reputation as one of the most fun and largest capacity holding concert venues in the city, Roseland will always be remembered as the most multifunctional and iconic venues in New York City.

All sadness put aside, we expect nothing less from our beloved stage on 52nd street than to host the best and most memorable shows in its last few months and end with a bang, for as music legend Neil Young was said, "It's better to burn out than to fade away."
