Datebook: August 29 - The Beatles Play Candlestick Park 46 Years Ago

Aug 29, 2012

On August 29, 1966, Beatles fans packed Candlestick Park in San Francisco for what would be their last live concert. Afterward, they embraced an experimental approach to their music, recording first Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The final performance concluded four years of touring over 1,400 concerts. I guess all they needed... was love.

It’s Wednesday, August 29
