PAUL McCARTNEY GETS BACK TO CANDLESTICK PARK
‘OUT THERE’ 2014 CALIFORNIA DATE CONFIRMED:
August 14 – San Francisco, CA – Candlestick Park
[…] Putting the rumor mill to rest, Paul has confirmed that he will indeed return to San Francisco August 14 to play Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert.
This once in a lifetime occasion is sure to be doubly bittersweet as Paul closes the same iconic venue where The Beatles played their final concert date on August 29, 1966. Of Paul’s most recent visit to San Francisco, headlining last year’s Outside Lands festival, the SF Weekly gushed, “One of pop music’s original supernovas… let us bask in its incredible warmth for the best part of three hours… The question of whether or not it was a ‘good’ show almost doesn’t apply — Paul McCartney… was good in a way that no other show could be.” […]

Each show on the tour is special, but one we’re especially looking forward to is Thursday’s gig at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. Paul’s ‘Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert’ will mark the last-ever concert in the iconic stadium, also the venue where The Beatles played their final concert date on 29th August 1966.
To mark the occasion Paul and his band have filmed a special message. Check it out below:

Paul McCartney took the crowd of 50,000 at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on a magical mystery tour back through time at tonight’s historic ‘Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert’.
During a rarely performed rendition of Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ — the last song to be performed in its entirety at The Beatles’ August 29, 1966 final concert at the same venue — the crowd was transported back to that very same night courtesy of a collection of previously unreleased photographs by the late Jim Marshall.
The only photographer to be granted unfettered access to photograph The Beatles’ last ever concert, Marshall’s images were granted this exclusive usage by Paul for his bittersweet goodbye to this iconic ballpark. […]

Earlier this year Paul made history when he performed the last concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, the very same stadium that saw The Beatles last public concert 48 years ago, almost to the day.
A new app launched today by Jaunt allows fans to relive the magic of that night—more accurately experience it for the first time in a completely immersive 360-degree virtual environment offering access to Paul like never before: the Jaunt VR app puts you right there in the crowd, onstage, backstage, or even right by Paul’s side in the midst of the climactic pyro, as he performs ‘Live and Let Die’ live at Candlestick. […]
Paul’s performance of ‘Live and Let Die’ was filmed using state of the art technology, Jaunt’s proprietary 360 degree, stereoscopic 3D cameras and 3D sound-field microphones. Viewers will experience a completely new level of immersion: complete freedom to look in any direction and experience every moment of the performance in true stereoscopic 3D with reactive, omnidirectional audio.
“The concert at Candlestick put Sir Paul McCartney in front of 70,000 live fans, and with our technology and the launch of our app, we’re opening up this access to many more,” said Jens Christensen, CEO of Jaunt. “We’re creating a completely new medium for entertainment. This is just the first step of our broader mission to bring viewers immersive access to the latest concerts, movies, sporting events and more through virtual reality.” […]
