Metallica has announced plans for a special concert at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York on 9/21. The occasion for the show is the return of the “Mandatory Metallica” channel on SiriusXM radio. The Apollo show will stream live on SiriusXM beginning at 8:30PM on Sept. 21.

Mandatory Metallica will take over SiriusXM’s channel 40 (otherwise known as Liquid Metal) from Sept. 13 through Oct. 6. The channel will play Metallica 24/7 during that time period, whether it be hits, rarities or live performances. The timing will coincide with the showing of the 3D film Metallica Through the Never in IMAX and regular movie theaters across the country.

The special Apollo show will be a private concert for SiriusXM subscribers and tickets will be distributed through a serious of giveaways starting today (Aug. 22), including an online entry at this location.
