Paul McCartney Forced To Postpone U.S. Tour On Doctor's Orders

Paul McCartney has postponed the first two weeks of his US summer tour on the orders of his doctors.

"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."

The postponed dates come on the heels of additional cancellations in Japan and South Korea after the former Beatles was struck by 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.

Rescheduled 2014 dates:

10/2 - Lubbock, TX 10/11 - New Orleans, LA 10/13 - Dallas, TX 10/15 - Atlanta, GA 10/16 - Nashville, TN 10/25 - Jacksonville, FL 10/28 - Louisville, KY
