Linkin Park Singer Leaks ‘Special’ Apple Show

iPhone SDK? Upgraded MacBook Pro? 3G iPhone?

What is it with musicians and Apple leaks?

Following on from Just Blaze’s verbal splurge about what turned out to be the MacBook Air (an event where he didn’t feature… wonder why?!), it seems Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda can’t keep his trap shut either.

On his website the rapper/singer/DJ gives us two surprising incites: 1. He’s not a fan of capital letters and 2. Linkin Park has been booked for a ‘special show’ in conjunction with Apple in New York.

Given that a February iPhone SDK was mooted by Steve Jobs himself in October this all fits nicely. What doesn’t work quite so well however is Linkin Park’s touring schedule which sees just the 24th, 27th and 29th free. With none of these falling on Apple’s favoured Tuesday and the first on a Sunday it would seem either 27 Feb or 28 Feb are favourites.

That said, Linkin Park is playing Madison Square Garden this month which would mean it could theoretically fit both the Apple show and a concert in on the same day. Unless Steve gets as irked by Mike’s outburst as he did by Blaze…
