On this day 51 years ago, The Beatles rocked the rooftop for the last time

It has been 51 years since The Beatles performed for the last time publicly, on a rooftop while on a break from recording their "Let It Be" album.

They hadn't always planned the rooftop gig. They were finding it hard to agree on where they should perform, but in the end they just performed on the roof top of their Apple Corp Headquarters during lunch hour, disturbing some men working on the street - so they called the Police who came and unplugged their gear because they were making too much noise.

That was on January 30th, 1969. It would be their last public performance together, as they broke up later that year.
