Apple hosting Brooklyn Academy of Music event, where Wu-Tang Clan just performed
Apple usually holds its big announcement events (like its most recent September 12 Special Event where the iPhone XS, XR, and Apple Watch series 4 were announced) in California, but for the first time ever the company has announced a NYC event. On October 30 at 10 AM, Apple will hold a press event at Brooklyn Academy of Music, around the corner from Apple’s Downtown Brooklyn location, which just opened last year. Unique invitations were sent out to different publications, all with the tagline “there’s more in the making.” While Apple hasn’t said what will be announced at the event, many are speculating that new iPad Pro tablets and Mac computers will be unveiled (right on time for holiday shopping).
The Apple event isn’t the only out of the ordinary thing that’s happened at BAM recently; they just hosted a week of Jimmy Kimmel Live shows. We already talked about St. Vincent’s performance and Cardi B’s interview, and for the final night of Kimmel’s Brooklyn run, Wu-Tang Clan stormed the ornate opera house, performing “Protect Ya Neck” and “C.R.E.A.M.” from their 1993 debut album (which turns 25 soon) Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son Young Dirty Bastard appeared in place of his late father, and Ghostface Killah delivered his “Protect Ya Neck” verse from inside a newsstand on stage, which various members of the collective threw candy from into the audience. RZA and Method Man also played a round of “3 Ridiculous Questions” with Kimmel earlier in the night. Watch all of that below.
