Sir Paul McCartney is expected to be well again just days from now.

The Beatles singer was hospitalized in Japan after falling ill from a severe virus.

And the star’s spokesperson assures fans Paul will be back on his feet in no time.

“[He] will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days’ rest,” reads a statement issued to Page Six by his publicist.

Paul is currently being treated for his malady and it seems his fans are aiding his health.

The musician appreciates all the love and support he is receiving as he recuperates.

“Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world,” his spokesman said.

The 71-year-old singer arrived in Japan to perform his Out There! series of shows earlier this month, however he has since cancelled these performances and his upcoming concerts in South Korea.

When news broke that his Japan and South Korea tours were being cancelled, a message was posted on Paul’s website in which he apologized to fans.

“Doctors have ordered Paul complete rest and he has been doing all he can to get better," it read.

“Paul has only ever had to reschedule a handful of shows in his entire career and is so upset about this situation. He hates to let people down.”

The musician added: "Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I’m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down."

Paul’s next stage performances will see him touring North America and aren’t until mid-June, with no suggestion that they are under threat at the moment.

  • The big-screen debut of Macca features Paul and his three bandmates (and his "grandfather") running around London, being chased by hordes of fans, as they attempt to film a performance for a television show. The movie was a parody on the Beatles staggering popularity.

  • The second comedy flick from the Fab Four follows the Beatles as they attempt to rescue Ringo from a cult who’ve chosen him as a sacrificial victim.

  • The last live performance by the Beatles (and arguably the greatest concert in music history), was recorded for the documentary, "Let It Be." Despite the band bickering and fighting on screen, the four still manage to pull off an entertaining, unannounced show on the top of the Apple records building in London, stopping traffic on the street below and prompting a shutdown by local police.

  • The film, named after the Beatles 1967 album, featured the Bee Gees’ Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, along with Peter Frampton (Billy Shears), as the reformed Sgt. Pepper’s band. The movie included covers of Beatles songs by other bands and celebrities (including this wacky version of "Maxwell’s Silver Hammer" by comedian Steve Martin.)

  • The 1974 James Bond movie starring Roger Moore featured a theme song composed by Paul and Linda McCartney and performed by Macca’s band Wings. The track is still one of the most popular themes in the 007 canon.

  • Similar to "A Hard Day’s Night," this day-in-the-life musical starred Paul and Linda McCartney and Ringo Starr, as themselves. The plot revolves around Paul attempting to locate the masters to his new album, which have been stolen by an employee.

  • Wes Anderson’s movies are no stranger to classic rock-heavy soundtracks. In his 2001 film, "The Royal Tenenbaums," Wes had the Mutato Muzika Orchestra cover the Beatles’ "Hey Jude," (a song credited to Lennon-McCartney, but mainly written by Sir Paul, himself).

  • Though McCartney and the Beatles did not provide voice work to the characters (well, other than the songs), the film was eventually endorsed by the group, after having reservations due to the negative reception of their last project, the TV special "Magical Mystery Tour." Here, the song "All Together Now," written primarily by McCartney, plays to great effect as the crew begins turning the ship on.

  • Speaking of the "Magical Mystery Tour" movie, which debuted on BBC1 in 1967, it ended up being a critical disaster for the band. But, oh well, at least it gave us McCartney singing "A Fool on the Hill"…on a hill!

  • Though it got mixed reviews from critics, "Across the Universe" still attempts to pay tribute to the Beatles in a new and unique way. Julie Taymor’s visually stunning musical is just one of the dozens of movies to reimagine the Beatles music. This scene features the McCartney-penned "I’ve Just Seen a Face," covered by actor Jim Sturgess
