The band was supposed to begin their tour on March 19 in Perth, Australia, performing in different locations across the country and finishing in Oceania on April 5 in Auckland, New Zealand.
“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 band apologized in a 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 Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.”
Frontier Touring has confirmed that the band will return on tour sometime in October and November, though it hasn’t specified any dates yet. The company has also offered to refund tickets for those who won’t be able to attend the shows on the new dates.
“While we encourage fans to hold on to their tickets, the option to secure a refund is now available to you via the official ticketing agency you purchased from,” the company said.
