San Francisco's Candlestick Park has hosted many memorable events since opening in 1960, one
of which was The Beatles' final concert on August 29, 1966. The venue is in its last days
it is scheduled to be demolished in 2014. Recently, former Beatle Paul McCartney
play Candlestick Park's last show according to a SFGate report.
Macca made the offer to San Francisco mayor Ed Lee. "And it was him who made the
suggestion," Lee told SFGate. "Believe me, it wasn't something I, or anyone else, was
expecting." The Mayor was meeting with Outside Lands organizer Gregg Perloff, who
him to McCartney before the former Wings front man's OSL performance. When Lee told Macca
that he planned to honor the Beatles' last concert during Candlestick's final days,
McCartney floated the idea of a performance, "Well, if you are going to tear down the
stadium next year, we should think about us doing the last concert there."
We'll see what actually happens, but we're just glad Macca will continue performing into
