Linkin Park rocks Apple Soho store with secret show

“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.”

  1. So it’s settled. The name of my band will be Molly Handjob and we’ll be recording on the Zune Tunes label. It will be an honor to share bin space next to one of my favorite southern fried rockers as well as partnering with the fine folks at Microsoft to distribute our fantastic music. All releases will be in glorious WMA format for a sound so rich and pure you I-Pod lemmings won’t know what hit you. Suck it MAC dorks.

    Your potential. Our passion.™
