The Beatles' final live concert ever is coming to digital streaming platforms and movie theaters this weekend.
The January 30, 1969, concert from the rooftop of Apple Corps headquarters in London marked the final time John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr performed together for a live audience.
The concert was originally captured for Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1970 Let It Be documentary film and remastered for Peter Jackson's 2021 Get Back documentary series on the sessions.
Giles Martin and Abbey Road engineer Sam Okell mixed the audio from the rooftop performance in stereo and Dolby Atmos.
The Beatles: Get Back - The Rooftop Performance hits streaming services Friday.
Then on Sunday, the 53rd anniversary of the rooftop concert, IMAX theaters in the U.S. and U.K. will host an hour-long screening event, plus a brief Q&A with Jackson.
Jackson's eight-hour long The Beatles: Get Back docuseries premiered on Disney+ in November, providing Beatles fans an unprecedented look inside the band's creative process and the close but complex personal relationships among the band members.
