Paul McCartney Cancels Second Tokyo Show

by Paul Cashmere on May 19, 2014

in Live,News

Paul McCartney has cancelled the second of his Tokyo shows after coming down with a virus.

50,000 fans had turned up at Tokyo’s National Olympic Stadium on Saturday night for the first Japanese show when they were told the show had been postponed. It was rescheduled for tonight, Monday May 19.

More bad news last night. The second show for May 18 was also postponed and the rescheduled Monday night show was also put off once again for a date to be confirmed.

One of the punters at the show was You Am I’s Davey Lane who flew to Tokyo from Melbourne just to see McCartney. Davey says he is “bummed’ at the news. “Two nights of 50,000 people each night turning up to a stadium in Tokyo to be turned back half an hour after doors were supposed to open was a surreal experience. His health is of the utmost importance but I hope we get to see him play,” Davey said.

At PaulMcCartney.com this statement was been published:

Doctors have ordered Paul complete rest and he has been doing all he can to get better. Paul has only ever had to reschedule a handful of shows in his entire career and is so upset about this situation, he hates to let people down. This morning he told his staff he was going to try and perform tonight against doctors orders, but his team, along with the doctors, wouldn’t allow it. He has been very moved by the fan’s reactions and messages of love and support he has received in Japan.

Paul has instructed his team to look at rescheduling options.

Message from Paul:

“Thank you so much for your kind messages of support. I’m so very touched. Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I was really hoping that I’d be feeling better today. I’m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down.

Love,

Paul”

東京国立競技場5月18日,19日の公演が延期

ポール・マッカートニー マネージメント広報より:
ポールは最善を尽くし、完治を目指していましたが、医師の判断により絶対安静を命じられました。長年のキャリアの中でもポールが予定通り公演を行えなかった事は数える程しかなく、この状況に本人も非常に心を痛めています。皆さんの期待に答えられないのがポールにとって辛い事です。今朝、ポールは今夜の公演を実施しようとツアースタッフに話していましたが、医師の指示とチームの判断で叶いませんでした。彼は日本のファンの皆さんからの暖かい励ましのメッセージに非常に感動しています。
ポールは公演を振り替えて出来るよう強く希望しており、現在その可能性を探っています。
ポールより:

皆さんの暖かい応援のメッセージをありがとう。とても胸を打たれました。残念ながら僕の体調は一晩では回復しませんでした。是非とも今日は元気になると期待していましたが、とても残念に思っています。今日の公演を楽しみにしてくれていたファンの皆さんに申し訳なく思います。

Love,

Paul

Todd Rundgren had a simple idea for his 70th year. The difficulty was in implementing it. Take one international rock god and his wonderful wife, blend in a few dozen devotees, garnish with some Australian rays of sun, and you have the perfect recipe for one helluva shindig to celebrate a 70th birthday (his fourth, this year).
