Forty-eight years after playing his final live Beatles show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, Paul McCartney announced he would play a farewell concert in August before the wrecking ball brings down the famed stadium. McCartney ended months of speculation with an announcement of the August 14th concert on his website.
Calling it Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert, the stop will be part of McCartney’s 1014 US Out There tour.
Tickets for the newly-announced dates will be on sale Monday, May 5 at 10am local time.?? American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, May 1 at 10am through Sunday, May 4 at 10pm.
Candlestick Park is scheduled for demolition in the Fall of 2014 after the San Francisco 49ers have moved to a new stadium in Santa Clara.
