METALLICA PERFORMS AT WORLD-FAMOUS APOLLO THEATER IN NEW YORK

9/22/2013

Blabbermouth reports METALLICA teamed up with SiriusXM radio to bring back the  Mandatory Metallica channel and celebrated with a special show last night  (Saturday, September 21) at Harlem's world-famous 1,500-capacity Apollo Theater  in New York City.

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. Hit The Lights 02. Master Of Puppets 03. Ride The  Lightning 04. Harvester Of Sorrow 05. The Day That Never  Comes 06. The Memory Remains 07. Broken, Beat &  Scarred 08. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 09. Sad But  True 10. Orion 11. One 12. For Whom The Bell  Tolls 13. Blackened 14. Nothing Else Matters 15.  Enter Sandman

Encore:

16. Creeping Death 17. Battery 18. Seek &  Destroy

METALLICA will reportedly perform today (Sunday, September 22) at  Yankee Stadium in New York to honor retiring Yankees pitcher Mariano  Rivera prior to their game against the San Francisco Giants — who  happen to be METALLICA's hometown team.
And why would  METALLICA pay tribute to the legendary Rivera, who's calling it  quits after nearly 20 years with the Yanks? Because for most of those  years, the future Baseball Hall Of Famer has been coming out of the bullpen to  close out games to the tune of METALLICA's "Enter Sandman" playing  on the stadium's P.A. system.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the Daily News contacted  Yankees reps about the matter, but a team spokesperson would not comment  on "any events surrounding Mo's ceremony."

METALLICA performed at Yankee Stadium once before, nearly two years  ago in September 2011 when the "Big Four" tour with SLAYERANTHRAX and MEGADETH stopped there.
