Paul McCartney announces Tampa show

- Fans in Tampa will get a rare chance to see a music legend later this year. Former Beatle Paul McCartney is coming to Amalie Arena.

McCartney, 74, is best known as a founding member of the Beatles but also spent years with his own band Wings.  He now tours on his own and has made three stops in Tampa as a solo act, most recently in 2005.

The show, part of the star's ongoing 'One On One' tour, will be Monday, July 10.

"We have a fantastic community and this fantastic community should have incredible artists come here and play here," Tampa Bay Lightning and Amalie Arena owner Jeff Vinik offered.  "We're very honored that Sir Paul McCartney would choose to come here to Tampa, and you know we're going to have a great performance in this building and give this community a fantastic show."

General tickets will go on sale Monday, May 1 at 10 a.m., though there will be an American Express cardholder presale beginning Wednesday, April 26 at 10.  Amalie Arena says ticket prices will range from $31.25 to $251.25.
