Paul McCartney Cancels His Japan and South Korea Shows Due to Sickness, Promises to Reschedule

Paul McCartney cancels the remainder of his Japan shows because of a recent virus he contracted recently. The same fate goes for McCartney's South Korea concert tour set on May 28. The Beatle's legend is now safe from any health dangers, and just needs more rest to be back and singing in his music tours.

McCartney has cancelled his Japanese "Out There" tour due to a worsening viral infection and requires complete rest, concert organizers said on May 20, 2014. His next show, set for Seoul on May 28, was also cancelled, media reported on May 22.
According to McCartney, he would have forced himself to perform in Japan against his doctors' orders, but his staff, along with the medical team wouldn't allow him. "Doctors have ordered Paul complete rest and he has been doing all he can to get better," read a statement on McCartney's official website posted Sunday. "Paul has only ever had to reschedule a handful of shows in his entire career and is so upset about this situation, he hates to let people down," reported CNN.
McCartney's team say he is not well enough finish the remainder of his concerts in Japan. He already missed his concert that was set last Wednesday, May 21, at Nippon Bukodan hall. The Beatles has already performed at Nippon in their first Japan tour in 1996.
McCartney sorely regrets his doctors' orders for a "complete rest."
"Tickets are being refunded from Thursday. The most expensive tickets cost 100,000 yen ($1,000) each. Some fans traveled from out of town for the concerts. Japanese are among the world's most avid followers of Western pop music," reported Huffington Post.
McCartney's postponed shows in Japan, and the one for Seoul, will be rescheduled as per the former Beatle singer's orders to his staff.
McCartney's spokespersons declined to provide details about the legendary singer's sickness at the moment.
But McCartney reaches out to his fans directly via online saying, "Thank you so much for your kind messages of support. I'm so very touched. 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," posted in Paul McCartney's official website.
