I do wish they'd treated it more as a concert than an opportunity to record takes for the album.

Was the Rooftop Concert actually meant to be a concert, or was it just them wanting to play on the roof?

Yes, they were originally going to return to touring but they decided to do just a single show instead, which they ultimately decided to do on the roof.

Were they going to tour? I thought it was a return to live performances but more a few performances in an exotic location(s) than heading back to 1966. George certainly would never have gone for touring from the off.

The famous plan was they would hire a boat and take the fans with them which George hated the thought of as he would never be able to escape.

I think they should have played live TV performances in the years after they stopped touring, and done the rooftop gig as a finale.

They kind of did with their semi-live performances All You Need Is Love in 1967 and Hey Jude /Revolution in 1968, but it would've been cool to see them do a full 30 minute show during this time.

They should've headlined the first Liverpool International Pop Festival in the summer of 1970, featuring Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar and others.
