Rolling Stones Gigs Rescheduled to Late 2014…

The Rolling Stones gigs in Australia and New Zealand, cancelled following the death of Sir Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott, are to be rescheduled for later in the year.

A statement from Frontier Touring said “every effort” was being made to move the gigs to October and November.

Fans have been told that if any new dates are not suitable, a full refund will be offered.

Sir Mick is believed to have travelled to the US ahead of Scott’s funeral.

The fashion designer’s death has been ruled as suicide by hanging, New York City authorities have said.

Her body was discovered in her flat by her assistant on Monday.

In a statement following the news, Sir Mick said he failed “to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way”.

The Stones cancelled the tour on Wednesday, thanking fans for their support.

They said they were “deeply sorry and disappointed” to postpone of the rest of their 14 On Fire tour.

It had been due to start in Perth that same evening.

Guitarist Ronnie Wood said: “As a band we are one big family and we’ve all come together to support Mick, and will do everything we can to help him.”

It is understood the rest of the band have flown to the US along with their singer.

While still in Australia, drummer Charlie Watts performed with the band’s saxophone player Tim Ries in a last-minute gig at the Ellington Jazz Club in Perth.
