Candlestick Park final sports event 12/23/13, Bobby Hebb performed at Beatle's Concert in 1966

Special Note:  Filmmaker Barry Hood was at the event and said that the audience gave total respect.  "Writer" Mike Downey is looking for "shock effect."


The worst stadium in sports?

Preceding them on stage were the Remains, Bobby Hebb, the Cyrkle and the Ronettes. The Beatles' last number: "Long Tall Sally." 

 Bobby Hebb was given total respect at the event. Later the news picked up that he sang Sunny in the cold.


Their final concert was there: August 29, 1966. At a press conference, the Beatles were asked how they felt about a rumor that "Day Tripper" was a song about a prostitute and "Norwegian Wood" a song about a lesbian. Paul McCartney, tongue in cheek, replied, "We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians, that's all."
