Paul McCartney is on the mend, his spokeswoman says. A virus infection forced the former Beatle to cancel his Japan tour and South Korea concert. TheSankei Sports newspaper reports that McCartney, 71, was admitted to a hospital when the infection worsened.
"Paul received successful medical treatment at a hospital in Tokyo," McCartney spokeswoman Perri Cohen told USA TODAY in a statement. "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." She declined to say whether he remained hospitalized. McCartney's Out There tour is scheduled to resume June 14 in Lubbock, Texas, with stops in Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago and Nashville, and wrap up Aug. 14 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, the site of The Beatles' last official concert in 1966.
