On January 30th, 1969 that the Beatles give their last live performance on the roof of their own Apple Studios, 3 Savile Row, London.

The band had come up with the idea of a rooftop performance a few days earlier, but the roof had to be shored up first in order to handle the weight of the group’s equipment.

Filmed for the movie that eventually became Let It Be, the set performed was as follows: “Get Back” (take 1), “Get Back” (take 2), “Don’t Let Me Down,” “I’ve Got A Feeling” (take 1), “One After 909,” “Dig A Pony,” “I’ve Got A Feeling” (take 2), “Don’t Let Me Down” (take 2), “Get Back” (take 3). (The band also does a version of “God Save The Queen” that is not recorded.) The concert, which lasts 42 minutes, comes to an abrupt end when police, tipped off by the complaints of a nearby shop owner, shut the concert down.
