Paul McCartney Postpones U.S. Tour Dates On Doctor’s Orders
It appears that Paul McCartney is not back to 100 percent perfect health. The rock legend has been forced to postpone the first two weeks of his U.S. tour this summer.
McCartney's 'Out There' tour was scheduled to begin June 14 in Lubbock, TX. However, that concert, and six others have been pushed back to October (see below for the new dates). The tour will now begin on July 5 in Albany, NY.
"I'm sorry but it's going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again," he said in a press release. "I'm feeling great but taking my docs' advice to take it easy for just a few more days. Look forward to seeing you all soon."
Last month, McCartney was forced to cancel an entire stretch of dates in Japan and South Korea when he contracted an unnamed virus on the eve of the tour. The illness caused him to be hospitalized for nearly a week. Those concerts have yet to be rescheduled.
