The Rolling Stones have postponed the rest of their Australia and New Zealand tour following the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott.
Scott, a renowned fashion and costume designer, was found dead Monday morning in New York.
In a statement the band said: “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.”
The rescheduled shows will be announced at a later date.
Scott, 47, died of an apparent suicide and was found hanged in her Manhattan condo.
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” Jagger said in a statement. “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.”
