Bootleg Beatles take to London rooftop despite local ban

Bootleg Beatles take to London rooftop

The replica Beatles' rooftop gig in London has been staged January 30, despite the event being banned by police. Members of tribute band The Bootleg Beatles had intended to reenact the infamous gig which the original group played on the roof of the Apple building on Saville Row 40 years ago today.
Police and council officials pulled the plug on the set, citing health and safety fears.
However, gigwise.com reports that two members of the group - David Catlin-Birch, who plays Sir Paul McCartney, and Andre Barreau, who stands in for George Harrison - were able to perform anyway.

Instead of the full set as originally planned, the musicians took to the roof to play an acoustic version of One After 909.
The original 1969 event was The Beatles' last public performance together and was also shut down by the police.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Sir Paul is to perform at a charity fundraiser thrown by director John Landis - to collect funds for transcendental meditation.
