Footage of Fab’s final concert emerges.

I can’t wait to see if this footage come through the bootleg pipe.  I seem to salivate more and more when I hear about new Beatle footage.  This batch sounds pretty good, and is so historically important in Beatle terms.  I can’t wait to see the chaos. 

Here’s what we’ve read.

Unseen footage of THE BEATLES’ final official concert is to be shown on British television later this month (NOV06), and will reveal that the band’s tours where less than professionally handled. Recordings made by BARRY HOOD at the gig in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on 29 August 1966 show GEORGE HARRISON, SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY, JOHN LENNON and RINGO STARR taking the stage for the last time, and a row breaking out between the venue’s ground staff. He says, “I filmed the stage being prepared and the fans queuing to get in. “There was a row between the equipment manager and the field manager who was frightened that the equipment van was going to ruin the baseball pitch.”

A spokesperson from the BBC adds, “This is the first time it has been shown. “It shows how The Beatles’ tours were quite amateurish and chaotic.”
