Full Show Friday | Beatles Rooftop Concert 45 Years Later

Forty-five years ago this month, on January 30, 1969, The Beatles performed live for the last time in their historic career. The quartet and guest keyboardist Billy Preston set up on the roof of Apple Studios on Savile Row in London as the climax of the Let It Be film they were producing. The band played for 42 minutes, 22 minutes of which were shot for the film and circulate on YouTube.

It's insane to think The Beatles not only stopped touring in 1966, but rarely played even a song together outside of the studio during the last four years of their career. The Rooftop Concert gives us a glimpse at what could've been had The Beatles toured behind Let It Be. Paul McCartney was a big proponent of The Beatles returning to the road in '69, as he felt that was the only way to bring the warring factions of the band back together. However, John Lennon was not looking to tour and won out in the end.
