Paul McCartney Postpones June U.S. Tour After Illness

By Kevin Rutherford

After postponing multiple tour dates in Asia following a virus infection there last month, Paul McCartney has done the same for a string of concerts in North America, per his doctors’ advice.

The former Beatle, who was originally slated to start a U.S. tour June 14 in Lubbock, Texas, has instead postponed all shows through the rest of this month.

“I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again,” McCartney said in a 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.”

The postponed shows have been rescheduled to October, with the Lubbock date kicking things off on Oct. 2. The rescheduled sets also include shows in New Orleans, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, Jacksonville and Louisville, the latter on Oct. 28.

Currently, the tour is scheduled to resume on July 5 in Albany, N.Y. It’ll run all the way to Aug. 14 for the final show in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.
