In the World: Beatles Perform on Rooftop

Thursday, January 30, 1969

The Beatles, in London wrapping up the recording of their album Get Back, performed for over forty minutes atop their Apple headquarters at lunchtime. After crowds began to form in the street and on nearby buildings, the police arrived and called an end to the “concert.”  It was the last time the Beatles performed together in public.

The rooftop concert was filmed as part of a documentary of the recording sessions. The footage appeared in the film Let it Be.
