Live Now: Paul McCartney at Tampa's Amalie Arena

It's been a long and winding road, a magical mystery tour indeed, but today, after 12 long years, Paul McCartney will finally get back to Tampa.

McCartney's One On One Tour hits Amalie Arena at 8 p.m. tonight, his first local show since 2005. And the Tampa Bay Times is ON IT. We'll be coming at you all evening with photos and reports from the scene.

Here's what you need to know if you're heading to the show.
