Beatles Rooftop Concert

This is Part I of the rooftop concert. The Beatles are together at their peak, and as they perform from the rooftop, London stops to take notice.

I could not help but wonder at the peaceful way that Londoners of that time were able to gather on the streets, window sills, and rooftops, to listen to what was already at the time a musical phenomenon. If anything equivalent were to happen in today's London, there might be the need to call out the Royal Marines to keep order. In addition, the performers would probably receive incoming mortar fire from a neighboring mosque. No, the entire thing would be much too risky today.

Hat tip Cuanas.
