Rolling Stones Cancel Tour, Issue Apology
The Australian leg of the Rolling Stones' latest tour has been canceled following the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend and the group is sending a message about it to their fans down under.
On the home page of the Rolling Stones official website, they have issued a statement to their fans about having to back out of their latest tour. The statement reads,
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 Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.
The group is making it perfectly clear that they are fully in support of Mick and shortly after Mick left Australia, the rest of the band followed suit.
Keith Richards said that they "hate to disappoint their fans" and that Mick is and always has been his "soul brother". Drummer Charlie Watts chimed in and said that they're all in shock, but their first priority is to be there to support Mick.
There's no word on when the shows will be rescheduled, but fans are being asked to hang on to their tickets.
