Rolling Stones to Resume World Tour in May
The Rolling Stones have announced that they will resume their world tour in May with a series of shows in Europe – their first performances following the sudden death of frontman Mick Jagger's longtime partner, L'Wren Scott.
The legendary rock band will return to the stage in Oslo, Norway, on May 26, and 13 more shows across Europe will follow.
The band canceled seven gigs in Australia and New Zealand following Scott's death on March 17. Tour organizers said they are making "every effort" to reschedule those shows for October and November.
The Stones last played together in Singapore on March 15.
Jagger had been dating Scott since 2001. She was found dead in her Manhattan apartment by her assistant, and the New York City medical examiner's office later confirmed that the cause of death was suicide. Scott, a celebrated fashion designer and former model, was 49 years old.
Jagger's spokesman said he was shocked and devastated by the news. Scott left all of her $9 million estate to him and was laid to rest at a private, 70-person ceremony at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles in late March.
