Paul McCartney Performs Last Show For Candlestick Park

The Beatles played their final live concert in Candlestick Park, San Francisco 48 years ago. On Thursday night, Paul McCartney played what will be the final concert ever in Candlestick Park.

Traffic tie-ups on all of the roads heading to the venue kept many of the 49,000 away for the first part of the show. McCartney started at 9 PM and played a 2-3/4 hour forty song concert to try and accommodate as many as possible.

Along with all the songs normally heard at a McCartney show, Paul added San Francisco Bay Blues for the city and Long Tall Sally, the final song played by the Beatles at Candlestick in their final show.
