“Linkin Park rocked a crowd of contest winners and industry personnel just after midnight Thursday (Feb. 21) at the Apple Store in New York’s Soho neighborhood, in what served as an intimate warm-up for a show tonight at the city’s Madison Square Garden,” Jonathan Cohen reports for Billboard.
“The set was recorded and filmed for what is expected to be a March release on Apple’s iTunes Music Store, sources say,” Cohen reports.
“Apple has hosted concerts at its New York store on several occasions, including performances by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Kaki King, the New Pornographers and Simian Mobile Disco. But Linkin Park is by far the most recognizable act to appear here to date,” Cohen reports. “Sources say additional A-list acts will play the store in the days to come.”
