ArtRave was a two-day event hosted by Lady Gaga in November 2013 to promote her 2013 studio album ARTPOP. The event, held in a large warehouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York, served as an album release party and included a press conference and live performance. During the press conference, Gaga revealed "the world's first flying dress", called the Volantis and introduced new works by Marina Abramović, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson. During the concert, which was streamed live on Vevo and later rebroadcast through the website's syndication partners, Gaga performed songs from ARTPOP.
"Lady Gaga Live at Roseland Ballroom" was the first residency show by Lady Gaga. Performed at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan, New York, the residency show began on March 28 and concluded on April 7, 2014, after completing seven shows. It was the final event hosted by the venue after it was announced that it was being closed down and being replaced with a 42-story skyscraper. As an homage to the venue, the stage was decorated with roses. The multi-leveled set-up consisted of New York City fire escape routes. Other parts of the stage had a ladder reaching the mezzanine floors and a replica of an F train carriage. Gaga's wardrobe was also rose themed, with leotards, hats and jackets, and instruments adorned with red roses. The main set list for the show encompassed songs from The Fame, The Fame Monster, Born This Way, and ARTPOP. Some tracks were performed in acoustic versions.
