Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, who canceled touring dates in Australia and New Zealand after the tragic death of L'Wren Scott, will resume touring in May with 14 dates in Europe, Billboard reported April 1.
The Stones' official website announced the 14 shows would take place in the months of May through July beginning with the opener at Oslo Telenor Arena in Norway on May 26. The group will also travel to Portugal, Switzerland, Israel, Holland, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Denmark for the newly added shows. Earlier reports had the Stones not resuming touring until the fall.
The Stones postponed first one show, then all their scheduled shows in the Land Down Under and New Zealand after the suicide of L'Wren Scott.
The group says their set will include classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumping Jack Flash”, ”Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, plus some “unexpected gems.” Late last year, the group released a live concert video, “Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live.”
According to Australian promoter Michael Gudinski in Billboard, there are discussions to bring the Stones back to Australia in the latter part of the year, around October or November.
