Although they made an unannounced live appearance in January 1969 on
the rooftop of the Apple building, The Beatles’ final live concert took place
at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California.

The Park’s capacity was 42,500, but only 25,000 tickets were sold, leaving
large sections of unsold seats. Loyal fans paid between $4.50 and $6.50 for
tickets, and The Beatles’ fee was around $90,000. The MC of the concert
was ‘Emperor’ Gene Nelson (below) of KYA Oldies Radio 1260 AM.

Jackie DeShannon’s biggest break came in February 1964 when she was an
opening act for The Beatles on their first US tour. She formed a band with slide
guitarist Ry Cooder, who briefly attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

DeShannon currently is an entertainment broadcast correspondent reporting
historical anecdotes and current Beatles band members’ news for Breakfast
with the Beatles on Sirius XM Satellite Radio on the weekends.
