Where to See the ‘Beatles – Get Back’ Rooftop Concert in Michigan
A big hit over the holiday season was "The Beatles: Get Back", the highly anticipated docu-series from acclaimed director Peter Jackson on Disney Plus. "The Beatles: Get Back" features some never-before-seen footage of songs being written from start to finish. Including the brainstorming of riffs, chords, fills that eventually all turn into the classic Beatles album, Get Back.
The almost 9-hour docuseries features the gambit of emotions from love and joy to anger and heartbreak showing a much different perspective of events from the Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1970 documentary, Let It Be. "The Beatles: Get Back" truly gives you the fly-on-the-wall experience with the band. It's shot over three weeks in January of 1969 with nearly 60 hours of footage and with more than 150 hours of unheard audio. The footage culminates with the band's final live performance, the renowned Rooftop Concert.
For One-Night-Only, you can watch The Beatles: Get Back - Rooftop Concert in stunning IMAX. Experience the unforgettable performance in a special 60-minute presentation of Peter Jackson’s docuseries in a one-night event on January 30. Only one theater in Michigan is showing the concert and it's in Livonia.
Walt Disney Studios gives you the full rundown of "The Beatles: Get Back" in this synopsis:
“The Beatles: Get Back” takes audiences back in time to the band’s January 1969 recording sessions, which became a pivotal moment in music history. The docuseries showcases The Beatles’ creative process as they attempt to write 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years. Faced with a nearly impossible deadline, the strong bonds of friendship shared by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are put to the test. The docuseries is compiled from nearly 60 hours of unseen footage shot over 21 days, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and from more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been locked in a vault for over half a century. Peter Jackson is the only person in 50 years to have been given access to this Beatles treasure trove, all of which has now been brilliantly restored. What emerges is an unbelievably intimate portrait of The Beatles, showing how, with their backs against the wall, they could still rely on their friendship, good humor, and creative genius. While plans derail and relationships are put to the test, some of the world’s most iconic songs are composed and performed. The docuseries features – for the first time in its entirety – The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the unforgettable rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, as well as other songs and classic compositions featured on the band’s final two albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be.
