After canceling his scheduled Saturday concert in Tokyo due to illness, Paul McCartney has now canceled a second show in the Japanese capital, as well as Monday's make-good show for Saturday's canceled date.
A message on McCartney's Japanese tour website reads, "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 [Sunday] against doctors orders, but his team, along with the doctors, wouldn’t allow it."
The statement adds that the 71-year-old former Beatle 's doctors have ordered "complete rest" for him.
A further message on the website from McCartney himself reads, "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."
The statement says McCartney has "instructed his team to look at rescheduling options" for the canceled shows.
