TAMPA – Having added a run of U.S. dates to his One on One Tour, Paul McCartney will perform Monday, July 10, 8 p.m., at Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa.

Paul McCartney’s One on One Tour got underway in April 2016 with the debut concert in Fresno, California. The show, which opened with McCartney’s first performance of “A Hard Day’s Night” since The Beatles last played it 1965, drew instant and unanimous raves from near and far.

One on One has since logged more than 40 shows and counting, spanning the globe from North and South America to the UK and Europe and, most recently, a run of Japanese dates. Venues have ranged from packed stadiums and arenas to one of the most intimate gigs of McCartney’s solo career to date at the 300-capacity Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace in tiny Pioneertown, California.

One on One’s 2016 run wrapped up with two headlining sets at the historic Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California, which featured surprise guest appearances from Neil Young and Rihanna, a fitting coda to a tour that featured McCartney joined on encores by the likes of Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic in Seattle, Jimmy Fallon in Vancouver, and both Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski at a record-breaking show at Boston’s Fenway Park.

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show and so much more, boasting nearly three hours’ worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, including dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. McCartney and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum in Rome, Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into space! Featuring McCartney’s band of the last 10 years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.

As with every Paul McCartney tour, One on One features dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career – as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle and no shortage of surprises. State-of-the-art audio and video technology ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house: Massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed make every Paul McCartney show a once in a lifetime event that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

Tickets start at $31.25. For tickets, visit Ticke­tmast­­m or call 800-745-3000. For venue information, visit www.a­malie­arena­.com.
