40 years ago tomorrow, The Beatles performed together live for the last time on the rooftoop of Apple Records in London. We've been telling you here on Beatles News about plans to commemorate this event, a recreation of the concert in San Diego, another celebration in Seattle to be attended by Ken Mansfield, and the original plans to recreate the concert in the original place.

Original Beatles Rooftop Concert, January 30, 1969

Here's three more celebrations planned for the anniversary tomorrow:

Beginning at 10 a.m., the Beatles tribute band Anthology will perform on Broward College's rooftop on Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It will be hosted by radio station WMXJ-FM Majic 102.7. Click here for more info.

Four Alabama musicians will recreate the show at noon on the roof of Trowbridge's Ice Cream & Sandwich Bar on Court Street in downtown Florence, Alabama. The group uses vintage equipment, including a Hoffner bass guitar and Vox amplifiers, to recreate The Beatles signature sound. Here's more info.

And Yuri Pool and friends will re-create the show at the rooftop of Coffee Culture, 260 Dundas St. (west of Wellington), England. The show will closely follow The Beatles' list 40 years ago. Click here to check it out.
