Amagansett’s Paul McCartney is recovering from an unexpected illness that forced him to cancel shows in Tokyo and Seoul last week after being hospitalized.
On May 17, McCartney posted the following statement to his Twitter account:
Thank you for such a beautiful and warm welcome to your country. I’ve unfortunately had to cancel tonight’s show in Tokyo. I came down with a virus on Friday and following a visit from my doctors, I’ve been told not to perform tonight. I am very sorry to all of my fans as I was greatly looking forward to the concert, but the situation is out of my hands. Along with the doctors, I’m doing all I can to ensure I will be better for tomorrow night’s show and the rest of my time in Japan. We are planning to replay this show on Monday. I really hope you can make it. Love, Paul
According to CNN, McCartney remained ill and was forced to cancel all of the remaining tour dates in Tokyo and Seoul. As of Monday, he has reportedly been treated and left Japan.
McCartney is expected to make a full recovery and resume his “Out There” tour in the United States next month. McCartney also plans to return to Japan and reschedule all of the canceled shows.
