To get ready for the show at the Roundhouse, the band started rehearsing at Twickenham Film Studios. They were flanked by Lindsay-Hogg’s film crew, but rather than work out a set they just bickered in front of the cameras. The biggest problem was that The Beatles -- a group of very famous and wealthy people -- had to get up early to make rehearsals. Twickenham was a strict union space which meant that they were only open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. That didn’t fly for guys who wanted to stay out and having a good time.

Harrison said he would rejoin the band if the group stopped talking about a live show and stopped working at Twickenham.
