McCartney axes two more Japanese shows

Sir Paul McCartney had to scrap a second concert in Tokyo, Japan on Sunday after failing to overcome a virus.

The former Beatles star was struck down with the mystery illness on Friday, prompting him to pull out of the first show of his Japanese mini-tour on Saturday.He had hoped to be well enough to return to the stage on Sunday and make it up to fans of the Saturday gig by adding a new date for Monday, but both performances had to be axed completely as he remained unwell.Reaching out to devotees online on Sunday, McCartney wrote: "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 rocker's representatives are hoping to stage the shows at a later date and have advised fans to hold on to their tickets.However, the 71-year-old remains positive he will bounce back from the ailment in time for Wednesday, when he is due to perform at the Nippon Budokan hall in Tokyo - 48 years after the Fab Four graced the same stage there in 1966.
