As you might have heard, Apple has a big event today. While the company hasn’t said anything about what will happen at that event, the general consensus is that the company will unveil its latest iPhone at the event, and maybe a few other things. Like U2.

According to The Huffington Post, U2—which is a rock band, not an Apple product, an easy mistake to make—will be present in some capacity at today’s event in Cupertino, California. Some suspect that they’ll be performing; there’s a mysterious new structure right by the venue that could conceivably be a stage. But those in the know claim the band’s appearance is purely promotional.

U2 and Apple do have a history going back to at least 2006, when the company announced a limited edition U2 iPod. So some sort of promo for whatever new products Apple announces today in conjunction with a possible album announcement makes sense.

Apple’s big event begins at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET). You can watch it here.
