Jim Marshall's shot from Candlestick Park revealed as McCartney returns nearly 50 years later
Paul McCartney has revealed a previously unseen photograph from The Beatles’ last ever gig.
The image, seen above, is one of a number shown on the big screen as McCartney performed live at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park last night (August 14) at a gig dubbed “Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert “. The venue is the same one The Beatles performed at on August 29, 1966 in what would prove to be their last ticketed public performance together.
A collection of never before seen Jim Marshall photographs were displayed as McCartney played Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’. The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution, a book of Marshall’s best work, will be released on October 14.
Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert is the latest sold out stop on Paul McCartney’s current ‘Out There’ tour. In July McCartney resumed the tour, after taking almost two months off following a virus.
In May, McCartney was taken ill and hospitalised in Tokyo, Japan. He subsequently postponed a series of shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville on his ‘Out There’ tour, which have now been rearranged for October.
