The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Paul McCartney has announced two new shows in the US for August, including the final show for the venue that hosted the last full Beatles concert. McCartney will be playing at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on August 10 and at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on August 14.
Candlestick Park is where the Beatles played their final full concert on August 29, 1966. The venue will soon be closing and the show is being dubbed Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert. It will be the last show for the stadium.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said on the announcement, "Sir Paul McCartney is a class act, and I am very grateful that he's coming back to Candlestick to help us give this iconic landmark the goodbye it deserves." He added, "To add a concert like this, one that's not only just great on a purely entertainment level, but one that is rooted in the city's history and musical history, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event."
