The Beatles: Get Back - The Rooftop Concert 

The Beatles: Get Back - The Rooftop Concert 

Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson’s epic project delved into the plentiful footage captured by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg of the Fab Four at work and play as they try to write and record what will become the album Let It Be. A key moment in this creative process has now been reconstructed by Jackson in its entirety: the Beatles’ iconic lunch hour performance atop the Apple building on Savile Row, on January 30, 1969. Drawing from Lindsay-Hogg’s extensive footage of the event and surrounding activities, Jackson has created a transportive, real-time view of John, Paul, George, and Ringo’s last live performance as a group.
