I had to look up ploppers at Urban Dictionary, and there is nothing about that word to like.

Don't blame me, blame Moss!

I was laughing at a circuit board today, some chump ran the data line right through the power supply. What a plopper!

Paul has had to cancel his entire Japan tour. :-(  From Beatlefan:

Beatlefan Japan correspondent Gen Onoshima reports it was announced May 20 that all shows on the Japan leg of the spring Out There! tour have been canceled because of Macca's continuing illness. 
An official statement said:
"Paul McCartney will regrettably have to cancel the remaining Japanese shows. Paul is still not feeling better and this cancelation is unavoidable. He was hoping to be better but the doctors have ordered him complete rest. Paul has been extremely moved by the messages from his fans and is upset to be letting them down.
All possibilities to find a solution to reschedule these shows as soon as possible are being explored."
And Paul issued a statement to fans, saying:
"I was really looking forward to playing in Japan again after we had such an amazing time here in November. So to cancel these shows as well as the National Stadium shows is hugely disappointing for me as well. I'd like to thank my Japanese fans for their love, messages of support and understanding. 
I hope to see you all again soon.
Love,
Paul

It looks like he'll have to cancel South Korea too. 

The postponements for illness are unprecedented in McCartney's career. Though he has postponed single shows in the past, he has never postponed this many shows at once for illness.

Examiner reports that the South Korea concert on the 28th May will be postponed tomorrow (Wednesday 21st May). I really hope its just a bug thats taking a few days to get over and nothing more serious. Paul is 72 this year after all.

A couple of pieces from Examiner (both in the same news article)

First an update on Paul 

The May 20 edition of "Good Day New York" gave an surprise update on Paul McCartney and his health problems. According to Barbara Pazmino, co-anchor Greg Kelly got the ball rolling when he said it was surreal to sit next to fellow co-anchor Rosanna Scotto, who has been longtime friend of Paul's wife Nancy Shevell.

When he told Rosanna that it had been on news wires that Paul had to cancel shows because he had a virus, Rosanna said, "Oh wait, let me check how he is." She got right in touch with Nancy, who said Paul was doing OK and just needed to rest and recover.

 

You can sign an online petition in support of The Cavern Club in Liverpool against the Hard Rock Cafe in the US over exclusive naming rights. The HRC currently has two Cavern Clubs in Boston and Florida.

 

[The update on Paul has also been posted in the "Out There" Tour thread]

This is the guitar he bought when he came to visited his sister and did the interview with the teen DJ who wrote up the school newspaper article about the interview. Ooooo, I'm learning my Beatles trivia :-)

Official update on Paul posted here.

Statement:

Since contracting a virus last week that led to the postponement of tour dates, Paul received successful medical treatment at a hospital in Tokyo.

He will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days rest.

Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world.
