Paul McCartney has announced two new American dates: L.A.’s Dodger Stadium on August 10th, and the last-ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on August 14th.
On August 29th, 1966, Candlestick was home to the Beatles’ final full concert. However, the venue will soon close and McCartney’s show is being billed as “Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert.”
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said, “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.”
