Wonderful Color Photographs of The Beatles' Rooftop Concert in 1969

30th January 1969, The Beatles surprised a central London business district with an impromptu concert from the roof of Apple offices at Savile Row, London. They played tracks including "Don't Let Me Down", "I've Got a Feeling", "Dig A Pony" and "Get Back". The police arrived to halt the proceedings, but the band continued to play. Despite their protest, no arrests were made, and the performance continued for 42 minutes.

Ringo said: "It was a memorable day for me - we were doin' what we did best - making music. But I am still disappointed the policemen didn't drag me off me drums!"

This was their final public performance.
