Apple is preparing to host a live gig by Ben Folds the New York SoHo district Apple Store next month.

This follows the success of the company's series of 'Live from London' events, which have so far featured Stereophonics, Tom Vek, James Blunt, and Stephen Fretwell. A 'Live from London' with KT Tunstall had been scheduled for earlier this week, but was cancelled at the last minute.

The free New York City SoHo event takes place September 6. It marks the release of Folds' iTunes Originals session - new songs and an in-depth interview with the musician to be made available exclusively through iTunes.
