Paul McCartney to play Candlestick Park farewell show on Thursday night

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The last great event to take place at Candlestick Park will be historic -- Sir Paul McCartney will perform Thursday night at a sold out show. The Stick is where the Beatles performed their last concert 48 years ago.

Officials are expecting at least 49,000 fans at the show. McCartney just played Sunday night at Dodger Stadium and his crew is now getting ready for the big Candlestick show.

The promoters told the San Francisco Chronicle that McCartney is planning to have more than 900 pyrotechnic effects Thursday night to celebrate the closing of The Stick
