Paul McCartney has been forced to cancel his remaining Japanese tour dates. The former Beatle is under doctor’s orders to get “complete rest” in order to ward off a virus that was already responsible for the cancelation of shows.
In a statement, organizer Kyodo Tokyo said McCartney “will regrettably have to cancel the remaining Japanese shows. Paul is still not feeling better and this cancellation is unavoidable.”
In a previously released statement, McCartney said he was “really looking forward to playing Japan again.” He continued, “Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I was really hoping that I’d be feeling better today. I’m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down.”
