Sir Paul McCartney has axed his remaining Japanese tour dates after falling ill with a virus.
The Beatles legend pulled out of shows on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (17-19May14) after contracting the mystery illness and now his Japan promoter has confirmed that more concerts have been cancelled.
The two newly scrapped shows include Wednesday's (21May14) gig at Nippon Budokan hall in Tokyo - set to take place 48 years after the Fab Four graced the same stage there in 1966. The other performance was due to take place at Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka on Thursday (22May14).
Organiser Kyodo Tokyo says in a statement that MCCartney "will regrettably have to cancel the remaining Japanese shows. Paul is still not feeling better and this cancellation is unavoidable".
He is still slated to take to the stage in Seoul, South Korea on 28 May (14).
