NEW YORK (PIX11) – The historic Roseland Ballroom will draw the curtains for good in April, according to a report on Billboard.com.

Reports of the venue closing surfaced based on an internal e-mail sent out to the staff.

Roseland Ballroom first opened in 1919 as a dance club at 51st Street and Broadway after moving from Philadelphia. The venue was torn down in 1958 and moved to the current location where acts including The Rolling Stones, Nirvana and Beyonce have all taken the stage.

Concerts are scheduled on the club’s website up through February with Panic! at the Disco playing on Feb. 4.

No official announcement has been made regarding the close.
