Paul McCartney wants to say goodbye to Candlestick Park in "Fab" fashion.

The former Beatle has brought up the idea of performing the final concert at the San Francisco venue before it's demolished in 2014, according to reports from the San Francisco Chronicle.

The subject reportedly was brought up by McCartney to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee while the vocalist-bassist was in town to perform at the recent Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in Golden Gate Park.

"And it was him who made the suggestion," Lee told the Chronicle. "Believe me, it wasn't something I, or anyone else, was expecting."

A McCartney finale would be a historically appropriate end to Candlestick, given that the building hosted the Fab Four's last ticketed performance in 1966.

Right now, however, the notion of McCartney performing the closing concert appears to be just that — a notion. There has been no official announcement that the Fab one will perform at Candlestick.
