TOKYO – Paul McCartney is canceling his entire Japan tour due to illness.
The former Beatle got a virus last week and canceled several concerts, apologizing online to fans.
Now, his organizers say he is not well enough to do any of the concerts in Japan, including the one set for today at Nippon Budokan hall, where the Beatles performed during their first Japan tour in 1966.
The official site of McCartney’s Out There Japan Tour 2014 said his doctors are ordering him complete rest.
McCartney, 71, is still scheduled for a concert in Seoul, South Korea, on May 28 at Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium, followed by 19 U.S. performances.
In Japan, two weekend concerts in Tokyo, a makeup concert scheduled for Monday and another in Osaka on Saturday were all canceled.
Representatives for McCartney declined further comment Wednesday about his illness.
