The grand finale of Candlestick Park, where Bobby Hebb and the Beatles performed to close-out the Beatles final tour!
Almost 48 years from August 29, 1966, on August 14, 2014 Paul McCartney returned to perform some of the Beatles songs he played "all those years ago."
Paul McCartney is Candlestick Park's closing act
CANDLESTICK POINT, Calif. — Sir Paul McCartney last played Candlestick Park on Aug. 29, 1966, with some guys named John, George and Ringo.
The Beatles' last concert was at the Stick that afternoon, a tidy 11-song, 35-minute performance largely drowned by the din of screaming teenagers and their admiring parents.
On Thursday night, it was Candlestick's swan song with Sir Paul at the mike. For 2½ hours, he played a mix of songs from his latest album, New, and hits from Wings and The Beatles. The set included songs such as Paperback Writer, Day Tripper and Yesterday from the Candlestick show in 1966. He even trotted out the last song of that show, a cover of Little Richard's Long Tall Sally.
McCartney hadn't played there since the last full Beatles concert ever, back in, oh, 1966. It's nearly impossible to make any of this sound more momentous than it already is. But hey, let's try.
