ROLLING STONES CANCEL ENTIRE TOUR OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
Early Tuesday the Rolling Stones announced the cancellation of tonight’s planned concert in Perth, Australia in the wake of the death of Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend L’Wren Scott, who died Monday of an apparent suicide. The New York Daily News reports Scott was found in her New York City apartment hanging by a scarf tied to a doorknob. Later, the band postponed their entire tour of Australia and New Zealand, posting the following message on their official website: “The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their ’14 ON FIRE’ tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott. 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 dates are expected to be rescheduled.
