Subscribe to on

Two days after canceling his entire Japanese tour, Paul McCartney reportedly has been admitted into a Tokyo hospital. The former Beatle and eternal music legend is suffering from a virus infection.

According to the Japanese newspaper the Sankei Sports (via USA Today), the 71-year-old superstar was admitted into the hospital after his infection got worse. But there’s been no confirmation on his condition or if he has indeed been admitted.

You can watch a Reuters news report about McCartney’s hospitalization above.

Last week, McCartney canceled two shows at Tokyo’s National Stadium, a rarity for the performer. Two days ago, he canceled the entire tour of Japan, but the rest of the dates — which resume in mid-June in the U.S. — are still listed on his website.
