August 23, 2013, a year ago
According to NESN.com, METALLICA are rumoured to be taking part in legendary New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera retirement ceremony on September 22nd at Yankee Stadium. For years now, Metallica's cross-over classic 'Enter Sandman' has been associated with Mariano Rivera as his entrance music.
It only makes sense as Metallica are teaming up with SiriusXM to bring back the Mandatory Metallica channel, and will be celebrating with a special show at Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater in New York City the night before (September 21st), that will air live nationwide.
Mandatory Metallica will be back with 24/7 commercial-free ‘Tallica music starting Friday, September 13th and will air through October 6th. SiriusXM Radio subscribers and members of The Metallica Club will have opportunities to win tickets to the gig very soon.
Says Metallica: "In a year of firsts, this is definitely a big one for us – we'll be playing at Harlem's world famous Apollo Theater in New York City on September 21st! We're teaming up with SiriusXM to bring back the Mandatory Metallica channel and will be celebrating with a special show for listeners that will air live nationwide on the revitalized channel.
The legendary theater has hosted an amazing array of artists such as JAMES BROWN, MARVIN GAYE, ARETHA FRANKLIN, STEVIE WONDER, THE JACKSON 5, and more recently PAUL MCCARTNEY and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, just to name a few of the incredible talents to hit the stage at the Apollo."
