MIDTOWN —  Lady Gaga will help close for one of New York's most iconic music venues.

The self-proclaimed Fame Monster will perform four concerts at Roseland Ballroom in late March and early April, promising the venue's last ever shows before it closes wll be "a real New York theatrical affair," Live Nation Global Touring announced.

The shows, billed as "a very intimate residency" with the international megastar, are scheduled for March 28, 30, 31 and April 1.

The concerts' announcement, made Tuesday morning, confirms months of rumors and a report by Billboard.com in October that Roseland would be shutting down in April. A receptionist for owner Larry Ginsberg said he "unfortunately was not available" to comment.

The 3,500-capacity venue on West 52nd St. has been in its current location since 1958.

The shows next spring will be part of Lady Gaga's tour for her latest studio album Artpop, which was released Nov. 6. Tickets are set to go on sale on Ticketmaster.com Monday, Nov. 25, at 10 a.m. Prices will be $50 for the floor, and $200 for the mezzanine.

"Starting with the March 28th performance on Gaga's 28th birthday, the concerts will be a celebration of New York's most venerable venue before it closes its doors forever," Live Nation said.
