    It's Metallica time...at the Apollo.

    Metallica will perform at Harlem's world famous Apollo Theater for the first time at a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers on Saturday, September 21 at 8:30PM ET. That's enough to make you want to buy a subscription, isn't it?

    Metallica will perform songs from their 30-plus year career, and the concert will air live nationwide on the band's limited-run SiriusXM channel, Mandatory Metallica, days before the release of the band's upcoming 3D feature film Metallica Through The Never, which will be released exclusively in IMAX theaters in North America on September 27 and wide on October 4.

    "With historic performances from James Brown to B.B. King to Ray Charles and all that came before us, this will definitely be a memorable night for Metallica, our fans and those listening on SiriusXM," said guitarist Kirk Hammett.

    Bassist Robert Trujillo concurred, "With its rich musical history the Apollo Theater and its legacy are totally unparalleled and we can't wait to perform there this September."

    Ya know, Korn once performed at the Apollo. We were there.

    Have you ever seen Metallica live or a show at the Apollo? If so, how were they?
