Paul McCartney plays Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on July 10, 2017.

Paul McCartney’s much anticipated One on One tour finally folled into Tampa, and more than 17,000 fans packed into Amalie Arena for a three-hour set that covered seemingly every base of the Beatle’s esteemed career. In an excerpt from his review, CL’s Gabe Echazabal described part of the show like this:

A three-hour journey that touched on the earliest days of his long career right up through his latest work might not have been what many in attendance were expecting out of the 75-year old performer, but Macca smashed those expectations and steamrolled on with the finesse and the drive of a real seasoned pro, which is exactly what he is.

Without the aid of an opening act, Sir Paul and his four-piece band walked onto the massive, darkened stage to thunderous applause and wasted no time jumping head first into the night’s barrage of hits. Spry, slender and fit, Paul donned a dark blue blazer, white button up shirt and jeans and looked comfortable and ready and prepared for the long night ahead. The familiar opening chord of Beatles classic “A Hard Day’s Night” struck and, again, the rafters shook as every single person in the place stood and cheered loudly.
