Lady Gaga Unveils New Poster for Roseland Ballroom’s Last Concerts

Lady Gaga is shutting down the iconic New York venue Roseland Ballroom, which will close its doors forever in 2014. The pop star will play a sold-out concert in her hometown venue on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2.

To advertise the concert, Gaga is using an image a photographer took of her in 2008 before she hit superstardom. The photographer stopped her on the street and asked to take her picture; when he asked who she was, she said, “I’m Lady Gaga. A singer/songwriter. You’re going to know me one day.”



this is how the posters look like irl:

*read the story of the photographer's encounter with Gaga here

"One fine day in August 2008 I was shooting street style for in the Meatpacking District. My editor and I were trolling for stylish folks when we happened upon the young woman posing above. When we approached her she was shopping with her mom but took a moment to pose for a photo. After taking three frames I asked for her info and in a very serious tone she responded, I am Lady Gaga - a singer/songwriter. It took all my energy to not break into hysterics, needless to say I let out a laugh later that day.

Sure enough it only took a couple months until she started popping up everywhere. After recounting this story recently to a friend I decided to dig up the photos. It seems that I caught her in the early stages of transformation into the cyborg we know and love today."

watcha think of the poster guys? i like the simplicity of it.
