On the Rooftop

30 Jan

On January 30, 1969…

On the roof of their own Apple Studios in London, the Beatles gave their last public live performance. They performed “Get Back”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “I’ve Got A Feeling”,  “One After 909”, and  “Dig A Pony”. They did more than one run through of several of the songs. The performance came to an abrupt end after 42 minutes when police shut it down. There were complaints from a nearby shop owner.

Watch it here:

A lot  of this session was commercially used  in the Let It Be film and on the Get Back (unissued) and Let It Be albums.

More details and a rather thorough run down of the event  here.
