Continuing the annual tradition of rooftop performances in Seattle-area locations, Crème Tangerine will perform a celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ last performance, famously known as the rooftop concert.

Crème Tangerine will perform songs from The White Album—“The White Album at 50” at 7 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Kirkland Performance Center, 350 Kirkland Ave. The band will perform songs from the rooftop performance and at noon on Feb. 1. on the rooftop balcony of the Copacabana Café in Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Started in 2009 as a celebration in tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Beatles’ last concert, Crème Tangerine’s Beatles Rooftop Day, has become an annual event on that anniversary weekend for northwest Beatles fans to celebrate the Fab Four’s influence on music in Seattle and throughout the world. The concert has attracted the endorsement of recording industry legend Ken Mansfield, according to a press release. Mansfield is the former U.S. president of the Beatles’ Apple Records label and was the only American on the roof with the Beatles at that last impromptu performance.

“After decades on the road working with bands and speaking engagements, I have found events shared with Crème Tangerine to be the most enjoyable. I was with the Beatles as their associate at their last concert on a London rooftop on Jan. 30, 1969, but actually had more fun with Crème Tangerine at the incredible rooftop celebrations in past years at Pike Place Market in Seattle,” Mansfield said in the release. “I like the fact that with Crème Tangerine, it is about the music and not about them. Professional, dedicated and purposeful sums it up for me.”

Crème Tangerine guitarist Tim Mushen said in the release that he’s enjoyed seeing fans celebrate the anniversary over the years.

“It’s been so cool over the years to see streets packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles on the last weekend of January — this music truly is a common bond people share together,” he said in the release. “We are honored to be hosting this show once again in Seattle. We’re looking forward to showcasing this fun event for free to give people a reason to take a moment to rock out, smile and have a little fun together on a winter weekend. We hope people will come out to Pike Place Market and enjoy it all.”

Crème Tangerine is a five-piece band from Seattle that performs the music of The Beatles.
