In Short
Whether it's Yellowcard and Snow Patrol or Method Man and Insane Clown Posse, this venue is hoppin' almost every night of the week. Decent stage views can be had from virtually everywhere. The balcony gets a little… Read Full Editorial

My Review by alexm2102925819 via Citysearch on 10/14/2013

I've been to the Roseland many times, going back almost 10 years. Most of the bands I like are booked exclusively at the Roseland when they visit Portland, so they always have a great lineup of bands there. First of all, before anything…

My Review by foodeater2000 via Citysearch on 3/3/2013

If you buy a ticket for a show here, make sure you know what you are buying. We had tickets to a show that drew an (ahem) older crowd (us included). The tickets were general admission - we were unaware when we bought them that there was…

roseland by punklette via Citysearch on 10/15/2010

So basically, I have been going there for years. I saw my first and my last concerts at the roseland, my deceased big brother worked there for a few years as a security guard and this is about the only place I and my family can see…

Roseland security upstairs can make a good night turn bad by portland808 via Citysearch on 4/10/2010

As others have already said, the Roseland is almost worth SKIPPING because of the bad experience security can create. They can take a $40-$100 or more spend and turn it into a frustrating bullying distraction.\r \r A friend (a cop) told me…

A letter I wrote the Roseland Staff about mistreatment. by RockNDetermed via Citysearch on 11/17/2009

Hi my name is **** and I wanted to follow up on an incident that occurred last night at the Hollywood Undead show. First off I took a friend to this show as a birthday present and spent $70 on tickets. The reason I'm writing you is…

Great Dr. John show by BIOS Dude via Citysearch on 9/11/2009

Of course, the show was great. We are right in his demographics.\r \r The people at the Roseland were very nice to us. Maybe it's that this show draws an older crowd? But everyone from the bartender telling my wife all about the…

plenty of space but still can't see by Sallypie via Citysearch on 6/17/2009

The only thing going for this venue is space and it's balcony. This venue has ample room for moshing and general crazyness by the stage. However it is quite hard to find a place to see the stage on the camped main floor. The balcony is…

Rumble at the Roseland was a blast! by NotoriousKelly via Citysearch on 6/14/2009

I've been to MMA events in arenas that were more comfy, but they don't have the hometown feel of the Roseland. This was my first FCFF event, and they kept the fights coming and didn't lose our attention at all. Plenty of crowd enthusiasm…

Security is brutal! by ahimsamonkey via Citysearch on 5/7/2009

My (sober) self slipped on the beer-covered stairs leading down to the main level and almost had my arm pulled out of its socket by the aggressive, surly security guard. I will never see another show here!

DO NOT GO HERE!! HORRIBLE SECURITY & STAFF, SKETCHY LOCATION by aRose via Citysearch on 4/11/2009

?Security did NOTHING to help my brother who got attacked right outside. They watched and did nothing!!! He was seriously injured! They lied to him and said they called the cops, but they didnt. The cop WE called said that the Roseland is…

Great Show! Don't act like an idiot! by DRPhibes1 via Citysearch on 2/24/2009

Just saw Blondie and the band was GREAT! \r I've read many reviews of the Roseland, and a lot were negative so I was a little bit aprehensive. The staff seemed friendly enough to myself and my girlfriend, but we are not the kind of…

Treated Poorly By Staff by Presentnow via Citysearch on 11/2/2008

I won't attend a show at the Roseland again. I had a seat upstairts in the balcony with some friends and my spouse. I left my seat to use the restroom. When I tried to return to my seat I was told I could not go back upstairs. I…

In Case of Fire, Beware by mywildchild via Citysearch on 10/12/2008

so, I would hate to be in this joint if there was a fire... Exiting after the show was a b**ch.\r but all in all it was a pretty good venue for the show. Flogging Molly played to the hilt and the closeness was very much like I remember…

avoid at all costs by nessamonster via Citysearch on 7/6/2008

The show was good, the band was amazing, however the people that ran the place were absolute jerks for no apparent reason. We called in regards as to when to show up for the show, the message that we got said that the doors open at 8,…

Great Venue for Shows....BUT by 10gear via Citysearch on 6/3/2008

I think that this is a GREAT venue to watch shows, good acoustics, is relatively small (in a good way) provides a little more 'intimate' feel with the artists. It's cool that it's all ages but that they have 2 bars (upstairs and…

awesome people by ezseven7 via Citysearch on 5/12/2008

"went to SNOOP the other night, and had a blast, even though snoop played for maybe 20 monutes at most-booooo--- but i found the security to be way cool. Guy by the stage once again, way awesome, helped me out more than once !

I had no troubles here like other reviewers did by animalnanny via Citysearch on 5/8/2008

We went to a B52s concert here, so perhaps the concert-goers for this show were exceptionally nice and polite. The staff barely looked into my bag, just asking if I had a camera. No one patted me down or checked my pockets. It did get hot,…

sucky venue, sucky bar and sketchy location by hootyhoo via Citysearch on 5/7/2008

i have vowed never to attend another show at the roseland many times but since the crystal ballroom seems to book lame shows lately i am forced to go to the roseland that happens to be in one of the worst locations in town. crackheads and…

Terrible venue by topher503 via Citysearch on 3/11/2008

I always tell myself that I will never go to the Roseland again but since the Crystal Ballroom, the only comparably sized venue, fails to book decent bands these days, I have to go to the Roseland.\r First of all, If you are seeing…

Excelent for live music by zwhite via Citysearch on 11/20/2007

The Roseland Theater is an awesome place to go to get close to your idols. With general admission you can always be front row. Perfectly sized for the shows being put on and security is not only great it almost seems as if the long lines…
