Paul McCartney will play a farewell show at the site of the Beatles last ever gig before the venue is demolished, it has been announced.

The singer will perform at San Francisco's Candlestick Park on August 14 before the historic stadium is demolished shortly afterwards. The Beatles played their final full concert there on August 29, 1966.

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, the city's mayor, Ed Lee, personally invited McCartney to close the venue. "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," Lee said. "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."

McCartney will also be playing at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium on August 10, a venue has hasn't performed in since The Beatles played there in 1966.

Earlier this month, McCartney was forced to cancel the first of two shows in Chile after his equipment failed to show up. He was due to play at the Movistar Arena in Santiago on April 21 but rescheduled the date to April 23 after a plane carrying all his gear didn’t arrive on time.

McCartney's south American tour will continue this month in Uruguay, Peru and will see him play Ecuador and Costa Rica for the first time. The tour will then head to Asia and the US later on in the year.
