Saddened by this. My first show (Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto) was at the venue.

really? i can't say i've ever really had a good show experience there (with the exception of one: the killers.) it's always overcrowded and i feel like no matter where you stand your view is terrible.

You're probably thinking of Grand Ballroom
I thought that sounded wrong, as well, but I couldn't remember where I saw them.

It was in 07, I think. With a shitty DJ as an opener.

Always sad to hear about a popular venue closing.

I would think venues in NY would have no problem staying open.

Always liked Roseland -- one of the better mid-sized NYC venues and much better alternative to Terminal 5, though the latter seemed to get better shows.

Didn't get to many shows there, but Snow Patrol in 2005 and AFI/DEP/Nightmare of You in 2006 were good ones.

I think the only thing saving Hammerstein are the balconies to be honest. Roseland only has one upper level which is GA. Hammerstein has actual seats on 2 levels. It's also perfect for sit down shows, not to mention wrestling and other special events. Also Hammerstein is bigger than Roseland capacity wise 3500-3200. There was really no need for Live Nation to have both venues. Hammerstein keeps getting the almost arena ready tours while Roseland keeps getting artists on the way down.
bingo, live nation doesnt need 2 venues in the same capacity range, although important to note is that Hammerstein is now an open room that any one can book (Bowery just did alt-j there).

Also interesting is that I hear Roseland and Hammerstein are both expensive rooms. take alot to run especially compared to Terminal 5. (one of the reasons that venue is probably still around despite its terrible reputation among new yorkers)

Honestly for me, with a few exceptions, past Webster Hall/Irving the shows tend not to be as good. Central Park and their Pier were good, and ive seen some amazing shows at T5 and MSG, but by and large it seems tougher for bands to deliver.
