The Rolling Stones have added two shows – in Perth and the Hunter Valley – for their rescheduled 14 On Fire Australian tour in late October, early November.
The band was in Australia ready to start their tour in March but this was suddenly postponed following the death of singer Mick Jagger’s partner, fashion designer L’Wren Scott in New York.
Tour promoter Michael Gudinski told The Age that the low number of ticket refunds to date showed ”the faith of the public” in the Stones rescheduling the dates.
”Its been a long road, it’s been a tragic road, but I’m so pleased for the fans the tour has been rescheduled,” he said. ”They (the band) were so pleased when they arrived in Australia, they were so looking forward to it …”
Pre-sale tickets for the new Perth and Hunter Valley shows will go on sale from noon, April 29 to noon, April 30.
Jimmy Barnes will be one of the acts performing in Adelaide (which remains the official opening of the refurbished Adelaide Oval). Hunters & Collectors will be the support act in Auckland. Support slots will be announced shortly for the Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley concerts.
Fans with tickets to the postponed shows who are unable to attend the new shows secure a refund from their original point of purchase prior to 5pm (local time to the venue) on Monday 28 April 2014.
