    Before the wrecking ball hits Candlestick Park, there could be a repeat performance by Sir Paul McCartney.

    The Chronicle's Matier and Ross reports McCartney floated the idea by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee during his recent performance at Outside Lands.

    Sir Paul reportedly told Lee, "If you're going to tear down the stadium next year, we should think about us doing the last concert there."

    When Shea Stadium was demolished in New York In 2009, McCartney played the final concert. Then, he and Billy Joel helped break in Citi Field, the new home of the Mets.

    The Beatles’ final live concert took place at Candlestick, August 29, 1966.
