From the official Beatles Facebook 
page:

Did you see The Beatles at Candlestick Park in 1966? Are you going back to see Paul at Candlestick’s final concert?

White Horse Pictures, who are producing the recently announced film with Ron Howard about the band's touring years, would love to hear your story.

Please contact the team at BeatlesLive@whitehorsepics.com

Paul is to play "Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert" August 14th, the last event at the stadium before it closes, and where

The Beatles played their final tour performance on August 29th 1966.

@georgiewood, you're in Cannes now, right? Any news of this being discussed there?

Ron Howard's Beatles Live Project film to be previewed for buyers in Cannes

Ron Howard's authorized documentary on The Beatles about their touring years that includes unseen material uncovered especially for the film will be getting a sneak preview for interested buyers in Cannes, The Beatles' Apple Corps, Imagine Entertainment, co-founded by Ron Howard, and executives of White Horse Pictures and Studiocanal announced May 5. The announcement revealed that White Horse Pictures and Studiocanal will handle international sales of the film. No release date for the film has yet to be announced.

The film is being made with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. White Horse Grammy Award-winner Nigel Sinclair, Scott Pascucci and Academy Award-winner and multiple nominee Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment are producing the film with Howard. Apple Corps Ltd.’s Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde along with Imagine’s Michael Rosenberg and White Horse’s Guy East are serving as executive producers.

The film focuses on The Beatles’ journey from the early days of the Cavern Club in Liverpool and engagements in Hamburg to their last public concert in Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. The film will explore The Beatles’ inner world and how they made decisions, how they related to each other and the way in which they built their careers all while showing off their musical gifts and complementary personalities. “Ron is providing an all-access backstage VIP pass to The Beatles, giving fans fascinating insights on the band, and the ability to experience what it was like on the inside,” said White Horse's Sinclair.

Filming and post-production on the film was described today as “well advanced,” though no timetable for release has been announced. The sound from the concerts used in the film is being restored by Giles Martin, whose work on the Beatles “LOVE” album with his father, Sir George Martin, won Grammy Awards in 2007 for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Visual Media and Best Surround Sound Album.

The project was originally brought to Apple Corps by One Voice One World, which has conducted extensive research around the world, including inviting Beatles fans to send in clips of home movies and photos that they acquired of the Beatles. White Horse Pictures and Scott Pascucci will represent the film's American rights in consultation with Apple Corps Ltd and Imagine Entertainment. The film does not have a U.S. distributor or a release date yet, a spokesman said.

“Studiocanal is excited to work with Apple, White Horse and Imagine on this world-class project,” said Ron Halpern of Studiocanal. “There are so many extraordinary things people are going to be seeing for the first time. We’re really proud to distribute it directly in all our five Studiocanal territories.”

One Voice One World's (OVOW) Matthew White, Stuart Samuels and Bruce Higham are co-producing the film. Paul Crowder is serving as editor. Mark Monroe, a long-time collaborator of Crowder, is serving as writer. Marc Ambrose (Bhutto) is serving as supervising producer. One Voice One World was specifically created for the project. The OVOW title is a reference to The Beatles' live performance in the “Our World” satellite broadcast on June 25, 1967.

The live project film was originally announced in 2012. Ron Howard was announced as the film's producer in 2014.

Article from the Jewish Press on a proposed but never occurring Beatles concert in Israel in 1965 due to a fear that the Beatles would be a disruptive influence on the youth.

Maybe. If they do they may also have some common sense and release the full concert (bar 'Long Tall Sally' which didnt fit on the tape. Oh god!!! They'll edit in the performance from Washington 1964 to give it the feel of a complete concert).

Most Bootlegs of the Candlestick Park Show omit 'Long Tall Sally' from disc, but about a minute or so of it did in fact "fit on the tape".  Thankfully the copy I have of this show included the finale which features that brief "warbly" sound synonymous upon conclusion with any magnetic tape recordings that ends abruptedly like this one did.  Much thanks to Tony Barrow who was asked by Paul before the show to record it for posterity.  I believe that he used his own personal handheld tape recorder which most members of the press were in the habit of carrying around with them back in the day.  Despite the not so ideal recording conditions, it sounds pretty good considering.

 

It's interesting to compare the Tokyo recordings from earlier on in that tour to this one.  Although the Japanese tapes are far superior in the fidelity department, the Candlestick Park Show blows the performances out of the water from either Tokyo Show that was recorded.  The one downer is that John's voice is nowhere near as high in volume as Paul's was at Candlestick, it gives the listener a somewhat lopsided view of the harmonies during certain numbers, especially 'If I Needed Someone' & 'Day Tripper' among others, still, the performances are solid whether it's because that they knew it to be their last show or, because they had played the set regularly up until then.  The Japan Shows (and Hamburg before it) were more of a warm-up/rehearsal for the American Shows, and it showed...:-)

Looks like its a October/November 2016 release for this.

From a wogblog report on the '1+' launch

"During the event, I had a brief chat with people at Apple, who told me the Ron Howard 'Beatles Live Project' film is slated for release about this time next year. Mention was made of when we can expect 'Let it Be', 'Live at Shea Stadium' and 'Hollywood Bowl' to be released, but was told 'Apple work slowly' - so hopefully we will see these in our lifetimes!"
