Paul McCartney is delaying until October a handful of Southern concert dates, including a stop he planned to make June 25 in Nashville.

"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 in a statement posted Monday on his website, paulmccartney.com.

McCartney was hospitalized last month in Tokyo with what authorities said was a virus. He's still recovering.
