NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Former Beatle Paul McCartney, following his doctors' orders as he recovers from a viral illness after falling ill in Japan last month, has rescheduled some US dates on his world tour.

"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 a few more days," McCartney said in a statement released on Monday.

He is expected to make a complete recovery.

The 71-year-old Grammy-winning musician cancelled his sold-out Out There tour dates in Japan and a concert in South Korea after being hospitalised for the illness.
