Paul McCartney has revealed a previously unseen photograph from The Beatles' last ever gig.

The image, seen above, is one of a number shown on the big screen as McCartney performed live at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park last night (August 14) at a gig dubbed "Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert".

The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution, a book of Marshall's best work, will be released on October 14.

Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert is the latest sold out stop on Paul McCartney’s current 'Out There' tour. In July McCartney resumed the tour, after taking almost two months off following a virus.
