The former Beatle last week cancelled several appearances due to illness, but this morning his organisers said he would not be performing any of the scheduled dates.

The official site of Sir Paul's Out There Japan Tour 2014 said his doctors were ordering "complete rest".

He is due to play at Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, on May 28, followed by 19 US performances.

In Japan, two weekend concerts in Tokyo and another in Osaka on Saturday were cancelled.
