Lady Gaga Ends Seven-Day Residency At Roseland Ballroom

Lady Gaga's seventh straight performance at New York City's iconic Roseland Ballroom not only brought an end to her residency at the venue but also the venue itself.

The legendary New York City venue officially closed its doors for the last time this past Monday. The venue doors closed due to reported financial burdens. It first opened in 1919 and eventually moved to its 52nd Street location in 1956.

It was Gaga's final show of a seven-date farewell, which she previously pegged as a "10-day funeral," for the nearly 100-year-old music hall.

"I love the Roseland," she told the crowd during the first night of her Roseland run March 28. On the final night of her residency, Gaga told the sold-out crowd: "Everyone is here for one reason," she said, according to CBS. "To say 'goodbye.'"

Her father, Joe Germanotta, who attended shows at Roseland as a teenager told CBS, "There's a lot of memories in this place. It's sad to see the place go."

"It really makes me happy that she's the last one to perform here," Gaga's dad added. "She's a New York girl."
