Paul McCartney canceled his concert at Tokyo's National Stadium on Saturday night due to an illness.
McCartney, 71, who arrived in Japan on Thursday, wrote on his website: "I've unfortunately had to postpone tonight’s show in Tokyo. I came down with a virus on Friday and following a visit from doctors, I've been told not to perform tonight.
"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. Along with the doctors, I'm doing all I can to ensure I will be better for tomorrow night's show and the rest of my time in Japan."
The concert has been rescheduled for Monday at the National Stadium. Organizers said tickets for Saturday's show are valid for Monday, but a refund will also be offered. Ticket pricess start at 13,500 yen.
McCartney is in Japan as part of his “Out There” world tour. He is scheduled to perform at the National Stadium on Sunday, at the Budokan on May 21 and at Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka on May 24.© Japan Today
