On August 14, Paul McCartney became the last performer to play at the soon-to-be demolished San Francisco’s Candlestick Park – quite fitting given that it was the scene of the Beatles’s final paid announced live performance ever in 1966 (the Fab Four’s last public performance was the famous impromptu Apple rooftop gig three years later). History also returned that evening when the Farewell to Candlestick concert revealed previously unreleased photos of the band – according to a press release – taken by the late photographer Jim Marshall who was there at the famous Candlestick show from 48 years ago – he was the only photog who had access backstage to the Beatles. It coincides with Marshall’s upcoming book, The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution due out October 14. Meanwhile, Macca rolls on with his Out There tour through October 30 in the U.S.
