Sir Paul McCartney has cancelled a concert in Tokyo after coming down with a virus, but has added a performance to make up for the loss.

The former Beatle had to cancel the Out There Japan Tour 2014 appearance at the National Stadium in Tokyo, but said he should be well enough for Sunday's scheduled concert and the new gig on Monday.

Sir Paul apologised to his fans, but said in a statement on the tour's official Facebook page that doctors told him not to play tonight.

Organisers said tickets for today's show are valid for Monday, but a refund will also be offered.
