Beatles superstar Sir Paul McCartney had canceLled his upcoming tour in Japan due to illness, the organisers have announced.
It has been stated that the 71-year-old singer has contracted a virus which will prevent him from performing his last two remaining gigs on his Out There Japan Tour 2014.
A message released on his website said that the Live and Let Die singer has been ordered to have "complete rest" and that he feels awful as he "hates to let people down". A quote from the singer himself said that he wanted to thank all his fans "for their kind messages of support".
Representatives for the star have said that they are hoping to stage the performances at a later date and have urged fans to hold on to their tickets.
