Apple Park opened Saturday with a tribute to Steve Jobs and a performance from Lady Gaga. CEO Tim Cook also addressed the thousands of Apple employees who attended the event at their new headquarters.
The star of the show was undoubtedly Lady Gaga. The pop superstar performed for nearly an hour on the rainbow stage designed by Sir Jony Ive’s team. She performed her hits like Bad Romance, Edge of Glory, and Shallow. Lady Gaga also got the Apple employees to raise the flashlights on their iPhones as she led a tribute to Mr. Jobs.
Staff at the event shared their experience on social media:
