On Tuesday The Beatles Final Concert 50th Anniversary This Week was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Monday marked 50th anniversary of the Beatles' final concert. The Fab Four's last show was held on August 29, 1966 at San Francisco's Candlestick Park.

It had been a difficult US tour for the band. On the one hand, audience screams overwhelmed the band's performances, and on the other the group faced incredible backlash over John Lennon's recent comments about the group being "Bigger than Jesus."

The band performed live just one more time, in January of 1969 on the roof of the Apple building, but Candlestick marked the end of their career as touring artists.

The Beatles knew the end was near, and Paul McCartney asked publicist Tony Barrow to record the show. Check out his recording - here.
