Apple to host Apps for (RED) event featuring Fall Out Boy frontman and GarageBand

December 4, 2014

Apple has just announced through its official App Store account on Twitter that it’s set to host an Apps for (RED) event featuring Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump and its GarageBand music app.

The event is scheduled for tomorrow, Dec. 4, at 8 p.m. at Apple’s retail store in SoHo, New York. Interested participants may sign up for the event here.

At the event, Stump is expected to perform live using GarageBand itself. He’s also set to talk about his creative process for composing music and writing songs using the app.

As mentioned, the event is part of Apple’s Apps for (RED) promotion on the App Store. Held by Apple in partnership with the Product (RED) brand until Sunday, Dec. 7, Apps for (RED) features a number of iOS apps and games, including GarageBand, with special (RED) content, the proceeds from which are being donated by Apple to (RED)’s anti-AIDS charity, the Global Fund.

In the case of GarageBand, it offers an in-app purchase to unlock the limited-edition (GarageBand)RED Loop Pack, including “an exclusive collection of 300 guitar, bass, synth and drum loops in a variety of genres.”

Apps for (RED) is itself part of Apple’s larger World AIDS Day campaign, which included special promotions at Apple retail stores on Black Friday, Nov. 28, and on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1.

Notably, on the latter date, Apple CEO Tim Cook made a surprise appearance at Apple’s retail store in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., with (RED) CEO Deborah Dugan.
