About Amateur Night
Since 1934, when the Apollo Theater first introduced its world-famous "Amateur Night," launching the careers of legendary artists like Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross and Lauryn Hill, the Apollo has been the nation's premier arena for emerging and established black and Latino performers. Based in the heart of Harlem, the national historic landmark hosts major pop, R & B concerts and special events and continues its tradition of discovering future stars in the syndicated television show, "Showtime at the Apollo," which is taped at the world famous venue and airs weekly in over 150 markets nationwide, and the historic and popular weekly stage show, "Apollo Amateur Night." One of New York City's top tourist attractions, the Apollo Theater draws 1.3 million visitor annually.
