0

The Rolling Stones have announced that they are ‘deeply sorry and disappointed’ to have to postpone the rest of their 14 ON FIRE tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott.

A statement from the band says that ‘Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement.’

In a statement about the death of his partner, Mick Jagger has stated on the band’s Facebook page, ” I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her.”

The band plans to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.

Australia/New Zealand promoters are asking ticket holders to phold on to their tickets until further notice. A new schedule of dates is presently being worked on and will be advised as soon as possible. Information will be made available via rollingstones.com and frontiertouring.com as soon as available.
