Apple will have a media event in San Francisco on Sept. 9

Apple confirmed a planned event in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on September 9, with analysts and fans expecting an iPod refresh to be announced.

The invite was sent out to select media and analysts, with an invite showing a shadow with an iPod dancing to music.  "It's only rock and roll, but we like it," is printed in the middle of the invite, indicating something iPod-related is expected.  Consumers anticipate new iPod Touch models to  be introduced, following the company's tradition of introducing new iPods each year.

However, there is some speculation Apple will finally announce music from The Beatles will finally be announced for iTunes.  

Apple routinely has joyous press events hosted by company CEO Steve Jobs, who often closes the show with a music act by a leading pop artist. This is the first major press event for Apple since Jobs returned in late June from medical leave due to a liver transplant and other health-related issues.  It's unknown if Jobs will make an appearance at the event, with multiple media sources indicate he will not be the keynote speaker.

If he is not at the event, it's possible he will provide a video message to the media and guests who are in attendance on September 9.
