Candlestick Park will go out in style before it’s dismembered for more condos with one more season of 49ers football starting this fall and a just announced concert with Jay Z and Justin Timberlake.

If you’ve never heard of Just Blaze, you’ve definitely heard his music.

Catch him tonight at 103 Harriet.
