On August 29, 1966, the Beatles emerged out of an armored truck onto the infield of San Francisco's Candlestick Park to the deafening screams of thousands of fans. No one knew that it would be the last live Beatles performance together... ever.
A friend of the band, legendary music photographer Jim Marshall was the only official photographer allowed to take pictures of them at what became a historic event in music. Marshall's shots chronicled the Beatles from their arrival at SFO, the backstage vibe, walking across the field to the stage, and performing onstage which are now available to the public for the first time. To commemorate the nearly 50 year anniversary after the Beatles last gig at Candlestick Park, and Paul McCartney's August 14th concert celebrating the storied venue before it is torn down, the Jim Marshall estate and San Francisco Art Exchange is offering a selection of five intimate, limited edition 16X20 archival photos from the final concert. Printed from the original 35mm negatives shot by Marshall, only 25 of each image has been produced for sale individually or in a set of five. These images are part of a bigger collection of photos from that iconic concert that are available for licensing through Jim Marshall Photography LLC.
Additionally, coming this fall, the Beatles photos have been included in a new book on Marshall's work The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution, due out October 14th (Insight Editions). Written by bestselling author and San Francisco music journalist Joel Selvin, "The Haight" features hundreds of stunning photos taken by Marshall from 1965–1968 in the Haight Ashbury, during what is widely regarded as the cradle of modern counter culture.
