The Beatles' January 30, 1969 rooftop gig is unforgettable. But what led up to it is a story on its own.
In this two-part series, we’re exploring why and how they ended up on the roof, as opposed to anywhere else.
This video, Part 1, details what the band was up to after the release of the White Album. Late 1968 live concerts by The Beatles were - unbelievably - partially planned and publicly discussed. The shows never happened, but - as explained here - they were the foundation for the Get Back sessions and rooftop concert.
