An anonymous source tells Beatles News that a well-known Beatles tribute band is planning to recreate the famous Beatles rooftop concert to commemorate its 40th anniversary.

The concert will take place on Friday, January 30, at No. 3 Savile Row, London W1, and the band will be trying to get as close to the original timings, starting the concert around 12:00.

The final live performance by The Beatles, the original unannounced rooftop concert was recorded and filmed, for the Let It Be film, on January 30, 1969, on top of the Apple Records office in London. The full performances included Get Back, Don't Let Me Down, I've Got A Feeling, One After 909, Dig A Pony, and God Save The Queen, which later surfaced on a German bootleg.

The Beatles played until the concert was broken up by the London police, saying they were causing a 'distraction' to the local businesses and making too much noise.

According to the source, celebrities, including some from the world of the Beatles, are expected to be in attendance at the anniversary event. Stay tuned to Beatles News for updates!
