New footage from Candlestick Park

The Beatles live at Candlestick Park, San Francisco, 1966.
Recently some hitherto not publicly available colour amateur film footage from The Beatles' final concert was uploaded to YouTube. As you probably know, that final concert took place on the field of San Francisco's Candlestick Park, which was demolished a few years ago.
You can find the new video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldxFc4xl0J00

Now one of our esteemed readers has taken it upon himself to stabilize the image in this footage:


Still silent, it's a well known fact that at the last minute, Paul McCartney asked their publicist Tony Barrow to record the performance on a little cassette recorder. The tape ran out during their final song, "Long Tall Sally". Barrow's recording can be found here. The concert was held on August 30, 1966.
