The Beatles Play Their Last Concert Today in 1966 (Technically)

On August 26, 1966, The Beatles played Candlestick Park in San Francisco. It was their last concert...technically. Less than 3 years later on January 30, 1969 on the roof of their Apple Records headquarters in London, The Beatles gave their, now famous, free impromptu performance. It was their last public appearance together.

By 1966, The Beatles had grown tired of touring. They started focusing more time in the studio and taking longer to create their records (Sgt. Pepper’s, White Album, Abbey Road, Let It Be, etc.). They made a band decision to stop playing concerts. So, their final concert with paying fans was at Candlestick Park, San Francisco, Ca., today in 1966.
