Paul McCartney Wants To Play A Farewell Concert For Candlestick Park
Even though this was the height of Beatlemania, tickets went for between $3.80 and $7. Outside the stadium, protesters marched in opposition to John Lennon’s recent remark that the Beatles were “bigger than Jesus.”
Inside, some Beatles’ fans unfurled a banner which read “Lennon Saves”.
KYA’s Gene Nelson MC’d the event:
“As any Giants fans will know, Candlestick Park in August, at night, was cold, foggy and windy,” said Nelson in “The Beatles Off The Record”, by Keith Badman. “The funniest thing this night was one of the warm-up acts, Bobby Hebb. He stood up on the stage at Candlestick Park, with the fog, and the wind blowing, and he was singing ‘Sunny’! It was tough anyway to work a ballpark as an MC, especially as The Beatles were taking their time to get out. I was trying to entertain a crowd that was shouting, ‘Beatles, Beatles, Beatles.’______________________________________
“The dressing room was chaos. There were loads of people there. The press tried to get passes for their kids and the singer Joan Baez was in there. Any local celebrity, who was in town, was in the dressing room. They were having a party in there. They were having a perfectly wonderful time, while I was freezing my buns off on second base!”
Remembering the '60s with Barrence Whitfield
Sept. 4, 2013
Whitfield wanted to go back to the band’s origins. “Back to where we left off in 1986,” he says.
Or even 1967. Bobby Hebb had just had a hit with a song called “Sunny,” which he composed to ward off the sorrow of losing his brother in a knife fight and his shock at the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It’s been recorded hundreds of times. The flip side of the single was “Bread,” a soul tribute to how the only way to attract women is through “good old U.S. currency.”
“I said, ‘Why hadn’t this record ever been covered?’ ” Whitfield practically wails. “ ‘Well, goddamit, we’re going to cover it.’ ”
On the EDge: Remembering yesterday and … The Beatles
I got to my seat quickly — on the loge level right behind the third-base dugout, which offered a marvelous, up-close view of the stage set up at second base, and just two rows, oddly enough, behind actor Don Knotts, the fellow who played Barney Fife on “The Andy Griffith Show.”It was a pretty cool show with Bobby Hebb, The Ronettes, The Remains, and The Cyrkle. Even Barney rocked to the music.The Beatles came out, did a tidy 11-song set of “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music,” “She’s A Woman,” “If I Needed Someone,” “Day Tripper,” “Baby’s In Black,” “I Feel Fine,” “Yesterday,” “I Wanna Be Your Man,” “Nowhere Man,” “Paperback Writer,” and “Long Tall Sally” and it was over…sort of.You see, there was a brand-spanking-new Lincoln Continental parked in a huge tent behind the stage. The Beatles dashed off the back of the stage, into the tent, and into the backseat of the limo.

Swing it Up in Chiemgau- Thermen
September, again the combination spa and live jazz. It plays the band "Swing it Up" from the dead. She has devoted primarily to swing the 30-to-70 years. Classics like "The Lady is a Tramp" and "All of Me" are presented in new arrangements. "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb sounds as fresh as ever. Sometimes bring the band out a little further. Then it provides samba and bossa nova or proves Herbie Hancock and his "Watermelon Man" with rock glory. Along for the ride is Julia Schroeter, professional all-rounder from Freising. It provides a supplement to the swinging horn sections. The voice of the singer is surrounded by four musicians: Flo Brandl on trumpet, Tony Wiedemann on bass, Andy Gleixner on drums and Bernd Stahuber on piano. The jazz brunch takes 11-14 clock depending on the weather at the "Oasis", or outside by the pool instead of baths. To pay is just the normal admission price to the thermal baths.
