Days after winning the highest accolade at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), Artiste of the Year, Black Sherif performed in New York’s famed Palladium Times Square.
Black Sherif performed back-to-back songs from his extensive catalog, and the audience responded enthusiastically.
Palladium Times Square (previously PlayStation Theater, Best Buy Theater, and Nokia Theatre Times Square) is a New York City indoor live events facility located in One Astor Plaza on the junction of Broadway and 44th Street.
David Rockwell, an architect, created the design, and it debuted in September 2005. The theatre features both a sizable space sitting in the back of the auditorium and a sizable standing-room-only orchestra section.
The location was initially constructed as the Loews Astor Plaza Theatre, a Loews Theatres movie theatre that opened in 1974 and shut its doors in August 2004.
The Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) leased the area, and at an estimated cost of $21 million, transformed it into a venue for live events.
