Roseland Ballroom To Close Their Doors
A spokesperson for the venue told NME in an interview: "The owners of 239 West 52nd Street have operated the Roseland Ballroom for over three decades. 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."
Legendary bands like The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Nirvana are among the acts that have played at the Roseland Ballroom. It is sad to see these classic music venues disappearing. In 2006 CBGB, another Manhattan staple, closed down, marking the end of an era that had helped spawn the careers of bands like The Ramones and Blondie. more on this story
