Paul McCartney has cancelled a further tour date in South Korea on doctors’ orders.

Rolling Stone reports that McCartney’s date at the Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium on May 28 will now no longer go ahead.

The latest cancellation follows the scrapping all of McCartney’s scheduled dates in Japan earlier this week after he contracted a virus.

McCartney postponed two dates in Tokyo over the weekend, explaining that he had come down with a virus and was told by doctors not to perform on the evening of May 17. A message on his website confirms the cancelled tour with doctors ordering him to have a “complete rest” and that he “hates to let people down”.

McCartney’s next scheduled gigs are a 19-date US tour beginning in June.
