McCartney confirmed on Monday that he will, however reluctantly, heed 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.

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

The Smoothie King Center has reschedule the show for Saturday, October 11. Tickets previously purchased will be honored for the new date.
