Sir Paul McCartney showed he has recovered from the virus that left him hospitalised in Japan when he returned to the stage for a concert in Albany, New York on Saturday (05Jul14).

The Beatles legend, 72, took two months out from his world tour to recuperate after spending six days in a Tokyo medical centre in May (14), suffering from a viral infection.

He was forced to axe concerts in Japan and South Korea, along with seven shows in the U.S., but he resumed his Out There tour in Albany on Saturday. During the gig, he dedicated song My Valentine to his wife Nancy Shevell.

MCCartney is due to perform 19 shows on the U.S. leg of his tour.
