NEW YORK -- 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 3D concert film, Metallica Through the Never, released in IMAX Sept. 27 and other theatres a week later. It will also air live on a special temporary Metallica channel on SiriusXM.
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.
And while the Apollo is known for its Sandman character who boots weak contestants during its famous amateur show, Enter Sandman is a well-known 1991 Metallica single.
