The Beatles’ final performance as a band will be available to watch and listen to very soon. Here’s everything you need to know.
If you’re a fan of The Beatles, you should be sitting down. The band’s iconic rooftop performance will be available to stream for the very first time tomorrow, January 28. Marking almost 53 years since it was recorded, the final concert has never been put out in its entirety.
The Beatle’s final performance marked the end of Get Back, the 8-hour documentary about the making of Let It Be. The full docuseries is available to stream on Disney+ now. The full rooftop performance will be available to stream at midnight from Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe.
Tomorrow, the audio from the full rooftop concert will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms.
The production team behind Get Back thought long and hard about releasing the audio tracks. After hearing from fans, they decided that creating a live album was a great way to celebrate The Beatles’ musicianship. Giles Martin, “steward of the band’s recorded legacy,” says it makes the songs feel more intimate without the visual component.
“The film adds a new level of appreciation to the . It’s contextualized,” he says. “You listen differently [having seen it], probably with more empathy, in a way. Some of the performances are great, while some of the performances aren’t the best performances ever. But it’s historical and it’s got a vibe to it. People can tune in more with that vibe because they’ve seen what it was like up there. There’s something more intimate about listening to it.”
