British superstar and former Beatle Paul McCartney have finally returned to London after being hospitalized while on tour in Japan. He was forced to cancel all his performances in the country, as well as in South Korea, when he was hit by a virus after arriving in Tokyo last May 16 from his sold-out South American tour.
Fans started getting worried when it was announced that he was canceling some of his shows in Japan upon his doctor’s orders. When news came out that the 71-year-old was rushed to the hospital for further treatments, people started being concerned not just for the canceled shows, but even more so for the singer’s health. The latest reports have come out saying that McCartney has recovered and was cleared to go home. He has reportedly left Tokyo on a chartered flight for London, effectively canceling the rest of his tour in South Korea, which was set to start at the Seoul Stadium on Wednesday.
The statements posted on his website revealed that he had “successful medical treatment” at a Tokyo hospital and is expected to make a complete recovery if he takes a few days’ rests. A post also mentioned that he is “so upset” about having had to cancel his shows and disappoint his fans. “Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world,” the statement read. Several of his fans had been keeping a vigil outside of the hospital where he was in, expressing their support for the quick recovery of their idol.
