NEW YORK — Paul McCartney is rescheduling U.S. tour dates as he continues to recover from a virus he received treatment for last month.

The former Beatles singer announced today tour stops scheduled for mid-June will be postponed to October. He was supposed to kick off the U.S. leg of his tour Saturday. Instead his first show will be July 5 in Albany, New York.

McCartney says he’s taking his doctor’s advice and will take more time to rest. Last month he cancelled his “Out There Japan Tour 2014” because of his illness.

U.S. tickets for the seven original June dates will be honored at the new dates. The tour wraps up Oct. 28 in Louisville, Kentucky.

McCartney turns 72 next week.
