Apple the concert promoters

This isn’t the first time Apple has run concerts. The most famous of these was the iTunes Festival (later Apple Music Festival), which Apple ran in the U.K.

Apple first threw the festival in 2007. In addition to offering tickets for fans to attend live, Apple streamed the shows online. Apple staged the last one in 2017.
