JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The upcoming Paul McCartney concert that was scheduled for Jacksonville on June 22 has been postponed.

The announcement was made on Sir Paul's website Monday.

"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," McCartney wrote on the site.

The website says the Beatles legend will take his doctor's medical advice and rest to recover from a virus that forced the postponement of recent dates in Japan and Korea.

The 'Out There' world tour will now resume July 5 in Albany, NY, and the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville.

The Jacksonville date has been rescheduled for October 25 at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

Tickets for the original June dates will be honored for the new dates.
