Paul McCartney Cancelled Tokyo Performance Due To Virus And Reschedules

Paul McCartney was forced to cancel his appearance in Toyko on Saturday (17th May) because he was suffering from a virus. The 71-year-old is currently travelling with his Out There tour but was unable to appear in Tokyo as his doctors deemed him too unwell to perform at the National Stadium.

The Beatles star was seemingly unwell on Friday (16th May) but his symptoms progressed over the following 24 hours. McCartney posted an apology on his Facebook page, stating “I am very sorry to all my fans as I was greatly looking forward to the concert, but the situation is out of my hands.”

Fans who were unable to see McCartney perform will be able to see the singer on Monday, when he continues his tour. He promised fans he would be well enough on Sunday to appear and that tickets from the cancelled show would be valid for an additional performance on Monday. Considering how much fans have paid for the tickets, they should be entitled to at least catch a glimpse at McCartney. According to The Washington Post, tickets ranged from $130 to $650.

McCartney has a fairly hectic schedule over the next month and, before he became unwell, would have had Monday and Tuesday as rest days following his appearances in Toyko. However, he will only have Tuesday to rest up and hopefully fully recover before once again performing in Toyko at a different venue, the Nippon Budokan hall. He has two more performances in Asia – on in Osaka and another in Seoul – before he continues his tour throughout the US.
