Metallica to Rock Harlem’s Apollo Theater for the First Time

BB Gun Press

This far into their career, Metallica are still finding “firsts.” Having just played China for their first time, they will now turn their attention to their first performance at a historic U.S. venue — the Apollo Theater in Harlem, N.Y.

The group has announced a special invitation-only show for fans taking place Sept. 21 at 8:30PM ET at the venue. The show is being put on by Sirius XM in coordination with their new Mandatory Metallica station. Invites will be given to Sirius XM subscribers through on-air and online promotions and the show itself will air live on Mandatory Metallica just days before the release of the band’s new ‘Metallica: Through the Never’ 3D film.

Guitarist Kirk Hammett stated, “With historic performances from James Brown to B.B. King to Ray Charles and all that came before us, this will definitely be a memorable night for Metallica, our fans and those listening on Sirius XM.” Bassist Robert Trujillo added, “With its rich musical history, the Apollo Theater and its legacy are totally unparalleled and we can’t wait to perform there this September.”

As mentioned, the show will serve as a precursor to the ‘Metallica: Through the Never’ film. The much-discussed 3D flick will be released exclusively in IMAX theaters on Sept. 27, with the movie expanding to more traditional theaters on Oct. 4.
