Lady Gaga kicked off her 28th birthday by performing at Roseland Ballroom on Friday night, March 28, 2014. The The artist performed many of her hits, including Born This Way, Monster, Bad Romance, Just Dance, Poker Face, Applause, and G.U.Y.
Lady Gaga's artRAVE: the ARTPOP ball tour is supporting the multi-platinum-selling artist's new album ARTPOP, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200.
The new dates are part of a multi-month North American tour that kicked off with seven sold-out shows at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, the most by any artist ever. These historic shows will be the last at Roseland prior to the demolition of the legendary concert hall.
Let's see what the critiques had to say:
Jon Caramanica, The New York Times: "Lady Gaga's music is the pretense, not the substance of her bond with her audience, which was clear Friday at Roseland Ballroom during the first night of her seven-show run there. What she gave the faithful was easy to digest: largely bulletproof pop, swinging back and forth between brooding, panting torch songs delivered at top volume and grand-scale 1980s-style digital rock with a nightclub twist."
Shannon Carlin, Radio.com: "...it was a throwback to what so many of us could only imagine it was like to see Gaga before she was Mother Monster. When she was still Stefani Germanotta working on her act downtown at those Lower East Side piano bars where she used to play in her early days."
Markos Papadatos, Digital Journal: "Overall, Lady Gaga was a pop muse tonight. She showed her New York hometown what she is made of: raw talent, great stage presence, energy and charisma. Although she performed 11 songs, they were all eclectic and they displayed different sides to her craft. She proved to all the naysayers that she is one of the hardest-working entertainers in music."
Mesfin Fekadu, AP: "Gaga was in top form as she sang nearly a dozen of her songs, including "Just Dance," an acoustic version of "Poker Face," and the recent hit "Applause." The concert's main surprise: It was too short. After she ended, fans waited for the pop star to hit the stage again. She never did."
