Amateur Night At The Apollo

Until November 21, 2018

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the local New York scene since 1934 when it launched, and has been the stepping stone in the career of many world-class musicians and entertainers, including Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder. The audience has the responsibility of cheering loudly for those they like and booing those they deem less adept off the stage.

The Big Apple's very own Apollo Theater pays tribute to the influential fusion genre with a special one-night-only homecoming concert for Harlem natives Riley and Keith Sweat, who'll perform their nostalgic hits alongside Guy, Blackstreet, Kool Moe Dee and Doug E. Fresh.
