Heavy Metal Comes To Harlem, Metallica Brings Act To The Apollo

Fans Called The Metal Group's Appearance At The Intimate Theater 'Epic"

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Heavy metal arrived in Harlem on Saturday night as fans lined up outside of the Apollo Theater to catch a performance by Metallica.

Fans of the band called the event historic as it was the first time a metal group had appeared at the Apollo which usually plays host to acts like James Brown and Marvin Gaye, 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported.

“It’s amazing. Epic is the word,” one fan told WINS’ Baumgarten.

The gig comes a week ahead of the release of the band’s 3D movie Metallica Through The Never which will appear on IMAX screens.

The film was shot during shows across Canada in 2012 and features a fictional storyline about the adventures of a roadie.

Saturday night’s show was planned as a “scaled down” version of the group’s normal live performances, according to a report in Rolling Stone.
