Metallica to headline at the Apollo

NEW YORK (AP) — There will be a different type of Sandman featured at the Apollo next month.

Metallica is set to rock the legendary Harlem venue on Sept. 21. They will promote their 3-D concert-action film, "Metallica Through the Never," released in IMAX on Sept. 27 and other theaters a week later. It will also air live on a special temporary Metallica channel on SiriusXM. The concert is just for SiriusXM subscribers, and invitation only.

The Apollo, revered for its place in black entertainment and historic performances from the likes of James Brown to Michael Jackson, has become a venue for rock legends in recent years, including Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney — both shows for SiriusXM listeners.

And while the Apollo is known for its "Sandman" character who boots weak contestants during its famous amateur show, "Enter Sandman" is one of Metallica's famous songs.
