They were joined by keyboardist Billy Preston, the band played a 42-minute set ending with the conclusion of ‘Get Back’ before the Metropolitan Police asked them to reduce the volume.   

Paul McCartney recently admitted the upcoming flick ‘reaffirmed’ for him that he wasn’t to blame for their split in April of that year.

Macca said this month: ‘It was so reaffirming for me. Because it proves that my main memory of the Beatles was the joy and the skill.

‘The proof is the footage. I bought into the dark side of the Beatles breaking up and thought, ‘Oh God, I’m to blame.’ I knew I wasn’t, but it’s easy when the climate is that way to start thinking so.

‘But at the back of my mind there was always this idea that it wasn’t like that, but I needed to see proof. There’s a great photo Linda [his late ex-wife] took, which is my favourite, of me and John working on a song, glowing with joy. This footage is the same. All four of us having a ball.’

Hailing Lord of the Rings filmmaker Jackson’s work on the flick, Paul added: ‘I love it, I must say because it’s how it was. It just reminds me of – even though we had arguments, like any family – we loved each other, you know, and it shows in the film.

‘It’s a very warm feeling, And it’s amazing just being backstage with these people, making this music that turned out to be good.’
