The legendary band played for the last time on the roof of the Apple Building in London in 1969 – and now fans will finally be able to see it for themselves
Ringo, who turns 80 on Tuesday, said: “I have only seen on the roof, and on the roof stands on its own.
“In the original documentary it was say 12 minutes, and he has got it up to 45. It is really, really great. It is really really good.”
The history books say the show lasted 42 minutes before the Metropolitan Police asked them to reduce the volume.
Ringo has revealed the Beatles’ final performance will be shown in full for the first time by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.
It ultimately became the final public performance of their career and a 45 minute version featuring them setting up and finishing will be something many Beatles fans will long to see.
Ringo added that Jackson has found the joy in the Fab Four’s last recording sessions, which were believed to have been plagued by arguments.
Earlier this week, Ringo announced he will virtually reunite with Paul on for an 80th birthday party online next week because of the coronavirus.
Ringo – who has held special ‘Peace and Love’ celebratory concerts to mark his birthday on July 7 for the past 12 years – is bringing together the likes of Sheryl Crow and former bandmate Sir Paul for a star-studded home event.
Ringo, who has been quarantined at his Beverly Hills mansion for 11 weeks said at the time: “I love birthdays. This year is going to be a little different. There’s no big get-together, there’s no brunch for 100 and no gangs of people outside.
“But we’re putting this show together – a TV hour of music and chat. I had big plans for all my kids and grandkids coming from England and my pals to have a huge thing .
”I don’t expect anyone to get on a plane and I certainly won’t be getting on a plane to go anywhere else.
“This year, I want everyone to be safe at home – so I called up a few friends and we put this Big Birthday Show together so we could still celebrate my birthday with you all, with some great music for some great charities. I hope you will all join me.”
The Beatles: Get Back is released on September 4.
