Description

Village Voice's Description

Roseland plays host to classic-rock luminaries and popular, touring, modern-rock acts not quite ready for the arena. But, because it holds more than 3,000 people and has security goons and lines that rival those at MSG, youad better get there early or risk that the only thing youall see of your favorite band is the faint outline of the back of their heads as they leave the stage after their encore. When you enter the historic ballroom, be sure to check out the plaque that hangs in the entranceway listing the hundreds of couples in its 75-year history that met there and married. Thatas something youall never see at the Garden.

    It was a short concert with no preshow acts, and with pitbull only singing two of his famous hits, rain on me and give me everything tonight. Never paid so much for a lame concert!

Tips from foursquare

    One of my favorite places to watch a show in NYC. We also taped many episodes of MTV2’s Subterranean down in its basement, including one with Radiohead. - Jim Shearer, Top 20 Countdown

    If your legs get tired from all of the dancing, grab a seat on the benches to the left side of the main room to take a little break from the action. – Team Live Nation

  • Live Nation on 03/11/10

    Check your coat and bags downstairs, it's organized, efficient, and you won't have to carry your stuff!

  • VH1 on 07/21/10

    Check out the bar to the left rear of the stage for a shorter line than the bars closer to the entrance of the venue. – Team Live Nation

  • VH1 on 07/21/10

    For FREE hot dogs and cheap beer before the show, head to Rudy’s not far from Roseland Ballroom. – Team Live Nation
