OTD January 30 - The Beatles
23 / 32
Apple Records

1969: The Beatles' last public performance takes place with an impromptu concert on the roof of Apple Records in London. The band managed to play for 42 minutes before the performance was broken up by the police because of noise complaints and crowds gathering on the street below. About half of the performance ended up in the film "Let It Be."
