Metallica Metallica will headline slot the Apollo Theater in New York next month. The band are set to perform at the famed Harlem venue on September 21st, and the show will air live as part of a revived Mandatory Metallica channel on SiriusXM.

SiriusXM subscribers and Metallica fan club members will be able to win tickets to the Apollo show. More information about entering to win is available here.

  1. The Apollo? Do these guys do anything ordinary anymore? Like release an actual good record and just tour without filming it or making documentaries? Does anyone remember when these guys were just about kick ass thrash and blowing shit up and not taking themselves so seriously?

  2. I never liked them. But anyways…..What’s the point? What’s next? The Metropolitan Opera House? The Fillmore? Yasgur’s Farm? Why does Metallica want to play a place known for showcasing R+B and soul singers? Is this for credibility? Are they the wannabe disciples of BB King? Sorry guys, but your music appeals to a niche audience and is irrelevant to 99% of the general public. Just like little girls need their boy bands, angry young men need their loud over-the-top-masculine heavy dude bands. No chicks allowed.

  3. Notice Eddie put that disgusting FUCK MONDAY garbage off the page as fast as he could. This is a similar venue to the DEVILS hockey in Newark. Its just conquering more ground for this great band. CONFESSION: I like LULU! It was too long is my only qualm. Don t hold it against me. Saw them in 1990s on Long Island. A great time for certain.

    • No dude its still there. More importantly WTF is this nonsense that you liked Lulu? I’m going to pretend you didn’t say that.

      • Probably should have kept that to myself. I got on clearance for $5.00 no more I swear and I checked it out and we looked at each other, and kinda one thing lead to another and look man it just happened. What was I supposed to do? They were all over the house. Karen, we needed that money….Anyway Lou Reed did some amazing things with Dick Wagner and there is line that refers to “a colored guy’s dick” . Lou Reed says “colored guy’s dick” on a song. I’m a history guy and there is some WW2 imagery and some atomspere going on. James really is THE TABLE. I AM I AM I AM I AM THE RICHMAN. Give me 2 more strikes DR. Some of those Hook Blow song titles are great. The Garth Brooks one is my favor…

  4. And again, that band photo looks like a VIAGRA ad.

    Mandatory Metallica. What’s this Z-Rock in August 1991? Next to the “Get The Led Out” channel. No wonder radio is deader than Adam Walsh.

  6. Ha! I like the comment about the Viagra ad. How true! Maybe they should just go ahead and play St. Anger from start to finish. I mean they have no idea what the fans want so I could actually see them doing this.

  7. Anyone starting to liken James and Lars to Gene and Paul?

  8. Imagine Jackie Wilson ’63 onstage at the Apollo compared to this crap? Industry show for Sirius. I’m sure they are laughing compared to the legends that built that place.

  9. Fear not … We still have Dave Mustaine MEGADETH to carry the mantel that Metallica dropped many, many albums ago … at least DaveMustaine “gets it” about keeping it real, hard & fast !!
