Lady Gaga celebrated her 28th birthday on March 28 with a short concert at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City in her first of seven concerts at the closing venue.
Lady Gaga performed for an hour Friday night in front of a feverish crowd. She started with a slow version of Born This Way on piano, with the audience joining in.
The singer followed that with the jams Monster and Bad Romance. She danced and sang on the side of the stage in a red tight leotard.
“Thank you so much for spending my birthday with me,” Lady Gaga yelled to the audience, which included her boyfriend Taylor Kinney and Nate Ruess.
Lady 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. After Lady Gaga ended, fans waited for her to hit the stage again.
She performed some tracks from her recent album, ARTPOP, which has struggled to match the success of her other releases. But onstage, she showed no signs of slowing down.
The New York-born singer closed with the new single, G.U.Y., now wearing an all-white ensemble (her sixth costume change for the night).
Lady Gaga will perform six more shows at the Roseland Ballroom, helping close the famed venue that opened eight decades ago. Her final show at the Roseland Ballroom will be on April 7.
