Candlestick Park was The Beatles' last official concert. John, George and Ringo had all expressed their desire to quit touring with only Paul holding out.
By 1966, even Paul wanted out. Touring had become a nightmare, with John's 'bigger than Jesus' episode resulting in a backlash against The Beatles in the US. Their albums were destroyed in organised burnings and their concerts picketed by the Ku Klux Klan.
The fact that the audiences couldn't even hear them play due to screaming fans made the decision to quit easier. They bowed out with Long Tall Sally at Candlestick Park - and that was that.
