Paul McCartney needs to get back to 100 percent before he hits the road again, and that's just what he's doing.
On Monday, the former Beatles singer announced apologetically that he would be postponing his June 2014 U.S. tour dates.
"I'm sorry but it's going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again," he said in a statement posted to his website. "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 71-year-old musician is, per his site, reluctantly heeding medical advice "to rest up just a bit longer to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea."
Fortunately for fans, though, McCartney's Out There world tour will resume July 5 in Albany, N.Y., and seven June shows have been rescheduled to October.
McCartney's revised tour schedule is posted in full on his website. We're wishing him a speedy and full recovery!
