It appears that Sir Paul McCartney has had to cancel the remainder of his 2014 Japanese tour due to illness. According to Rolling Stone, McCartney is under strict doctor’s orders for “complete bed rest” in order to fight off a suspected virus.

In a prepared statement, McCartney told fans that he was “really looking forward to playing Japan again” and apologized profusely. “Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I was really hoping that I’d be feeling better today. I’m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down.”

The former Beatle is expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks and is scheduled to bring his “Out There” tour to the United States starting on June 14.

Get well soon, Sir Paul. 🙂
