Paul McCartney cancels Japan tour due to virus

TOKYO - Paul McCartney is canceling his entire Japan tour because of illness.

 

The former Beatle got a virus last week and canceled several appearances, apologizing online to his fans.

 

Now, his organizers say he is not well enough to do any of the concerts in Japan, including the one set for Wednesday 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." (AP)
