Paul McCartney Wants to Play Final Concert At Candlestick Park

On Tuesday Paul McCartney Wants to Play Final Concert At Candlestick Park was a top story. Here is the recap: ( In 1966, San Francisco's Candlestick Park hosted The Beatles' final show. Now Paul McCartney is offering to return the favor by headlining the stadium's final show before it gets knocked down in 2014.

The city's mayor Ed Lee told the San Francisco Chronicle that McCartney threw out the idea a half hour before taking the stage at this year's Outside Lands Festival. "And it was him who made the suggestion," Lee said. "Believe me, it wasn't something I, or anyone else, was expecting."

The two talked about Candlestick and how the city was collecting photos and videos to honor the Beatles' final concert. McCartney then compared the Candlestick tribute to what they did at Shea Stadium in New York, where the Beatles played two of their most famous show. McCartney played Shea Stadium just before it was demolished in 2009 and then, along with Billy Joel, helped christen Citi Field where the Mets now play.

According to Lee, McCartney then said, "Well, if you are going to tear down the stadium next year, we should think about us doing the last concert there."

While Lee stood there speechless, McCartney added, “You know my agent. Why don’t we follow-up with him?”

The stadium is set to be demolished in early 2014.

If McCartney does play the stadium he can play old favorites that he played in 1966 like “I Wanna Be Your Man”and “Paperback Writer”, along with new songs of his just announced 16th studio album, due out sometime this fall.

I want to show some appreciation to the witrer just for bailing me out of this particular matter. Just after surfing around through the world wide web and getting suggestions which are not pleasant, I figured my entire life was well over. Being alive minus the solutions to the problems you`ve sorted out all through this article content is a critical case, and the kind which may have adversely affected my career if I had not noticed your blog post. Your own knowledge and kindness in playing with every aspect was useful. I am not sure what I would`ve done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I`m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to suggest the blog to anyone who needs to have assistance on this subject.
