One more for the road? In August of 1966, the Fab Four embarked on their final tour, playing 17 shows in the U.S. and two in Canada. Curiously, the band eschewed songs from their just-released album "Revolver" and instead focused on earlier hits like "She's a Woman" and "Day Tripper."

In this rarely seen silent footage, the band rocks out in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens on August 17, 1966.






The tour concluded on August 29, with a final performance at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. The band largely turned its attention to studio recording until they split up about four years later.
