BANG & OLUFSEN PAUL MCCARTNEY

Paul McCartney was taken to a Japanese hospital while suffering from a lingering virus, which forced the former Beatle to postpone his entire Asian leg, according to Beatlefan. The Sankei Sport reported that McCartney was admitted on Wednesday (May 21st), posting, “Even after he became ill, some doctors visited his hotel room and treated him, but the recovery was unsatisfactory and the doctors admitted him to the hospital against his wishes. ‘Macca’ himself has hoped to stay at the hotel and rest. His wife Nancy (Shevell), who hastened to visit Japan said ‘Paul was doing OK and just needed to rest and recover.’”

McCartney’s representatives issued an official statement on his progress: “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.”
