All You Need Is Cash: Paul McCartney Candlestick Farewell Is Most Expensive Concert Ticket Of The Summer


Want to go to Paul McCartney’s Candlestick Park farewell concert in August? The average price of a ticket on the secondary marker is currently $892, making it the most expensive concert ticket of the summer, according to Forbes.com. Tickets officially go on sale on Monday, and face value for general admission is $49 to $150 each. It’s the last stop on McCartney’s Out There! Tour, which also makes stops at Dodger Stadium, Target Field in Minneapolis and the United Center in Chicago, among other places.

The Beatles, of course, played their final stadium concert at Candlestick Park in 1966 … where tickets went for $3.80 to $7, and they didn’t fill the stadium.

The average price for Paul McCartney tickets in San Francisco is currently $892 on the secondary market. That price is 156.6% above the $347.60 average across the 16 scheduled stops on the Out There! tour. Plenty of significance regarding both McCartney and the venue have added to the value on the secondary market. It will be the last event at Candlestick Park before the historic venue is demolished. The stadium is also the place of the last full concert from The Beatles on August 29, 1966, which is also last time McCartney played at Candlestick.

According to Forbes, McCartney is expected to sell out every show on the tour.
