The Rolling Stones officially announced they will be postponing the remainder of their 14 on Fire tour of New Zealand and Australia. The cancellation comes on the heels of the death of Mick Jagger’s long-time girlfriend L’Wren Scott. Scott, a fashion designer, was found dead of an apparent suicide on Monday, March 17, 2014. Scott was discovered hanging in her Manhattan apartment by her assistant early Monday morning.
The official statement:
“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.”
The band will announce the rescheduled dates at a later date.
The postponed shows:
Perth Arena – 19 March
Adelaide Oval – 22 March
Sydney Allphones Arena – 25 March
Melbourne Rod Laver Arena – 28 March
Macedon Ranges Hanging Rock – 30 March
Brisbane Entertainment Centre – 2 April
Auckland Mt Smart Stadium – 5 April
If you have already purchased tickets to one of the postponed shows, the Rolling Stones ask that you hang onto them until updates on the new dates are announced. For more information, visit rollingstones.com and frontiertouring.com.
