In this two-part series, we’re exploring why and how The Beatles ended up on the roof, as opposed to anywhere else in the world. Part 1 is here: https://youtu.be/lxb5_wCI-S0
In Part 2, we go deep into the conversations and ideas the band and production crew had about how the "project" – film or otherwise – should end. This video picks up on January 2 at Twickenham Studios and continues through the show day.
The band explored some wild ideas for the gig: returning to the Cavern Club, a concert for dogs, playing at the amphitheatre at Libya’s Sabratha ruins. But ultimately the roof won out, and you’ll learn why here.
