Paul McCartney is getting back ‘Out There’

Music icon to return to Japan for 2014 stadium shows!

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th May: National Stadium, Tokyo
Saturday 24th May: Yanmar Stadium Nagai, Osaka

Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul’s critically acclaimed ‘Out There’ tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and end here in Japan, today Paul confirms he’ll be coming back to Japan this May.

From paulmccartney.com, May 17, 2014:

Thank you for such a beautiful and warm welcome to your country.

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.

We are planning to replay this show on Monday.  I really hope you can make it.

Love,

Paul McCartney

Doctors have ordered Paul complete rest and he has been doing all he can to get better. Paul has only ever had to reschedule a handful of shows in his entire career and is so upset about this situation, he hates to let people down. This morning he told his staff he was going to try and perform tonight against doctors orders, but his team, along with the doctors, wouldn’t allow it. He has been very moved by the fan’s reactions and messages of love and support he has received in Japan.

Paul has instructed his team to look at rescheduling options.

Message from Paul:

“Thank you so much for your kind messages of support. I’m so very touched. Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I was really hoping that I’d be feeling better today. I’m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down.

Love,

Paul”

From paulmccartney.com, May 22, 2014:

Since contracting a virus last week that led to the postponement of tour dates, Paul received successful medical treatment at a hospital in Tokyo.

He will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days rest.

Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world.
