New York - Paul McCartney is rescheduling US tour dates as he continues to recover from a virus he received treatment for last month.

The former Beatles singer announced on Monday tour stops scheduled for mid-June will be postponed to October. He was supposed to kick off the US leg of his tour on Saturday. Instead his first show will be on 5 July in Albany, New York.

McCartney says he's taking his doctor's advice and will take more time to rest. Last month he cancelled his Out There Japan Tour 2014 because of his illness.

US tickets for the seven original June dates will be honoured at the new dates. The tour wraps up on 28 October in Louisville, Kentucky.

McCartney turns 72 next week.
