The Beatles at Candlestick Park, Aug 29, 1966.
According to the latest issue of Mojo, there’s unseen 1966 Candlestick Park footage in the new "Eight Days A Week" documentary. "We got it from an old lady who had a box of film under her bed. She said, ‘I sat in the 6th row, and I shot this footage.’ We digitally transferred it, we were the first people to ever watch it!"
Yesterday, a bit of that footage was used by The Beatles to commemorate 50 years since that final concert for a paying audience. This short film features both scenes from The Beatles' at the stadium in 1966 and Paul McCartney’s ’Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert’ in August 2014.
Rolling Stone also chose to remember the concert on their website.
