Paul McCartney To Play Candlestick Park's Farewell Show

Paul McCartney will play the final show at the Bay Area's Candlestick Park before it shuts down later in the year. The gig is scheduled for August 14.

"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," San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee told the San Francisco Chronicle.

"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."

The Beatles famously walked away from touring after a 1966 gig at Candlestick Park. On August 10, Macca plays at L.A.'s Dodger Stadium, a venue he hasn't visited since the Fab Four played there in 1966.
