Paul McCartney was set to perform several dates in June as part of his Out There world tour, including a June 19 stop at the Smoothie King Center. Today, he announced those dates have been postponed until October due to illness. He'll perform in New Orleans on Oct. 11.

In a statement, McCartney said, "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."

Tickets for the original June dates will been honored.
