The historic Roseland Ballroom opened in 1958 as a ballroom dancing hall before it hosted concerts by the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Radiohead and Beyonce. Following Gaga’s residency, the venue will shut down in April. “How completely epic for an amazing venue,” Gaga said, according to Billboard. “I mean, what a dream come true. Who has a 10-day funeral?” Meanwhile, fans outside and inside would wish her happy birthday throughout – after all, Gaga was turning 28 that night.
