SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — You might sum this up as ‘band on the run.’
A potential farewell concert by Paul McCartney at Candlestick Park may move from the 49ers old home to their new home in Santa Clara.
KCBS and Chronicle Insider Phil Matier reports in Sunday’s Matier and Ross column that the 49ers are in talks to have McCartney perform the opening concert at the new Levi’s Stadium.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s office has been in talks with the former Beatle since last year to perform a final concert at Candlestick, the site of the Beatles final paid concert in 1966.
City officials reportedly feel “blind-sided” by the talks between the 49ers and McCartney’s promoters.
