Paul McCartney reschedules US tour, Atlanta date to fall

(USA Today) -- Paul McCartney, recovering from a viral infection that forced postponement of several tour dates in Asia last month, is now pushing a string of U.S. dates to the fall, including his show at Philips Arena in Atlanta, which was originally slated for June 26.

The ex-Beatle is following his doctors' advice to rest up before returning to the road. The June dates on a U.S. tour, slated to start Saturday in Lubbock, Texas, have have been shelved until October.

"I'm sorry but it's going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again," McCartney said in a statement. "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."

McCartney was hospitalized in Tokyo in May after scrapping a handful of dates inJapan and one in South Korea, then canceling all remaining dates of the Asian tour.

His Out There tour now resumes July 5 in Albany. Tickets for the June dates will be honored at the newly rescheduled shows.
