Summer’s coming and Apple has once again anounced its annual iTunes Festival in London for 2010.
Apple’s iTunes will present 62 bands across 31 days in a series of performances at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, London. Announced highlights include Scissor Sisters (July 1), Tony Bennett (July 2) & Ozzy Osbourne (July 3).
“This has all the makings of a great gig,” says Ozzy Osbourne who will release Scream, his first album in almost three years via Epic, on June 14. “I’ve never performed before at the legendary Roundhouse, and it’ll be fantastic to do an intimate show there for the fans. We’re also recording it, so if you can’t make it to the gig, it’ll be available for download on iTunes.”
Babydaddy of Scissor Sisters said, “We can’t wait to tickle your fancies with songs new and old as part of iTunes Festival. This will be our first performance ever at London’s legendary Roundhouse”.
Tony Bennett adds, “The audiences of Britain have been so warm and welcoming and I always look forward to coming here to perform.”
Each performance will be recorded and sold exclusively on all 23 iTunes Stores worldwide. ITV will be broadcasting the best of the festival from the Roundhouse.
