The Roseland Ballroom (also referred to as Roseland Dance City) is a multi-purpose hall, in a converted ice skating rink, with a colorful ballroom dancing pedigree, in New York City's theater district, on West 52nd Street. The quirky venue has hosted everything, from a Hillary Clinton birthday party, to annual gay circuit parties, to movie premieres, to musical performances from all genres. It is best known after the American singer Fiona Apple threw her infamous tantrum during her concert at the venue in 2000. On October 18, 2013, it was announced that the venue is slated to close in 2014.
Gaga was part of the "Z100 & BlackBerry All Access Lounge 2008" pre-event before Jingle Ball 2008. It was a free event with performances by Brandy, Lady Gaga, Secondhand Serenade and The Veronicas. Other artists besides Gaga from the Jingle Ball 2008 lineup were there to sign autographs and that included David Archuleta, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry and Jesse McCartney.
