The Beatles: Their Final Paid Gig

http://youtu.be/s2XV9HmsAFE

It’s hard to believe perhaps, but it was 46 years ago today, on August 29, 1966, that The Beatles played their last paid gig.

(There was, of course, the unpaid and unannounced live appearance nearly 2 1/2 years later, in January of 1969, that would take place on the Apple Records Building rooftop, but the 1966 show was their final concert).

It was at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, and of course it marked a true turning point–the boys were growing artistically and besides the annoying screams of fans hindering their performance on stage, they were experimenting with sounds that couldn’t be replicated by the four of them outside of the studio.

It was seven years to the day since they had first performed together in Liverpool at the Casbah Coffee Club.

The following year, 45 years ago this week, on August 27, 1967, the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, was found dead in London of an apparent drug overdose and days later the band would announce they would be handling their own affairs from then on.
