Amateur Night At The Apollo
The Psychedelic Furs
Nov 13, 2021
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.

Founded in London towards the end of the punk scene, The Psychedelic Furs revolve around brothers Tim and Richard Butler and their art-rock, indie rock sound. The band first came to the notice of mainstream American audiences in 1986 when director John Hughes used their their song 'Pretty in Pink' in his movie of the same name.

The theater was originally opened in 1914 as Hurtig & Seamon's New Burlesque Theater and was designed in the neo-Classical style, by George Keister. It has a seating capacity of 1506, and is located between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem, Manhattan. It became the Apollo in 1934, and is now a music hall which is recognised as a venue for African-American performers. The interior and exterior of the venue were recognised as New York City Landmarks in 1983, and the building has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. Each year, an estimated 1.3 million people visit the Apollo.
