Paul McCartney has been forced to postpone the first seven shows of his upcoming US tour. Last month Macca had to postpone dates in Asia when he fell ill with a virus and was hospitalized.
"I'm sorry, but it's going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again," said McCartney in a statement. "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 former Beatle's US tour will now start on July 5 in Albany, NY. The tour was initially scheduled to culminate with a performance at Candlestick Park, which will mark the final music performance at the venue before it is torn down. After the San Francisco show McCartney will take a break for a month and a half before playing the postponed dates, starting in Lubbock, TX, on October 2.
