It's great to see musical guests back at Apple events. In the past I've seen U2, Norah Jones, Dave Matthews and many more at these things. This is Cook's first.
I hope the video of the event, which Apple will likely post later, captures just how fantastic this audio is. The band's levels are matched to perfection.
And one more song from the Fighters: "Walk"
@jwhitley That's what we're expecting too.
Rumor had it that we'll see another Apple event in October. I'd say that's extremely likely at this stage.
It's great to see all these journalists nodding along while furiously typing.
Foo Fighters have been around 18 years, and this is the first time they've played an Apple event. What took them so long? ;)
Cook is back on stage to applaud the Foo Fighters, with half the audience on their feet.
"I hope you're excited as we are by what you saw today. Thanks for coming." And with that, Cook ends the event and ushers us to the hands-on product areas.
Will there ever be another One More Thing? I guess we'll find out in October. Maybe.
Nice. Pretty much what we expected, but some cool surprises in there, like the dual-band WiFi.
Thanks for joining us, folks! Lance and I are heading off to get hands on with the products -- and to find out if the iPhone 5 really does have a headphone jack on the bottom now. We'll keep you updated with stories throughout the day.
I wonder if the iTunes update will explicitly remove Ping.
@AmyVernon Thanks for joining us!
