Per the website, he will need "a few more days" to make a full recovery.

"I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again,” the former Beatle said in a blog post on his official website. “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 newly rescheduled tour will kick off on July 5 in Albany, New York. The June shows have been postponed for October and tickets will be honoured at the new dates.
