Paul McCartney sets sights on Candlestick’s last bow
It was actually former Beatle PAUL MCCARTNEY who first brought up the idea of headlining one last concert at Candlestick Park – where the Beatles played their final gig for a paying crowd in 1966 – before the stadium’s date with the wrecking ball.
That historic concert will take place this Thursday at the old, windswept Candlestick Park
Candlestick was originally built for the San Francisco Giants baseball team after they came to San Francisco in 1958.
A typical cold, windy night at Candlestick. Yes, this is summer in San Francisco.
It became such a negative, the Giants tried to turn the cold weather into a positive with these
‘Croix de Candlestick’ buttons that were given out to those who would brave the cold nights at Candlestick.
