NEWORLEANS-- Paul McCartney's tour date in New Orleans has been pushed back until October, while he recuperates from a virus.

'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 said on his website.

While the 'Out There' world tour will resume July 5 in Albany, N.Y., the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville have been rescheduled to October. The New Orleans show is rescheduled for October 11.

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

The virus that McCartney has battled forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea.
