Paul McCartney closes Candlestick Park in style

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY shut down San Francisco's fabled Candlestick Park with an unforgettable hits show on Thursday night (14Aug14), returning to the stadium where the Beatles performed their last U.S. show.

The rocker closed his historic show just before midnight with a flashback to the last time he performed at Candlestick - he posted a previously unseen photograph from the Beatles' gig in 1966 on a huge screen at the back of the stage.

It was one of several Jim Marshall shots taken at the gig almost 50 years ago that was displayed as McCartney performed a cover of Little Richard's Long Tall Sally.

McCartney's Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert event was the last music event to be held at the park, which is set to be demolished next year (15).
