Exactly 51 years ago a legendary British rock band played its final live show. Fitting for a band as iconic as the Beatles, the show began and ended in unusual fashion.
Fun Fact of the day:
On Jan. 30, 1969, the Beatles went up to the rooftop of their record label headquarters and began playing music. The unannounced performance was the band’s first in two and a half years, lasted 42 minutes and contained new music.
The band played in front of a pleasantly surprised crowd until a noise complaint prompted the police to ask the band to keep it down. The Beatles kept playing after the police arrived, until an officer yanked out a cord from their equipment.
There you have it: the police pulled the plug – literally – on the world’s biggest band.
On this day in 1969, The Beatles performed an unannounced concert on the roof of Apple Corps in London. They played a 42 minutes set, before the police asking to reduce the volume.
