On June 4, 2014, the Rolling Stones achieved a band milestone by performing in Israel for the first time. The concert (which was part of the Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour) was held at HaYarkon Park in Tel Aviv.
On June 3, 2014, members of the Rolling Stones did some sightseeing in Israel. According to the Times of Israel, guitarist Ronnie Wood, drummer Charlie Watts and keyboard player Chuck Leavell visited the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Meanwhile, lead singer Mick Jagger went to the Roman ruins at Caesarea on Israel’s Mediterranean coast.
On May 26, 2014 in Oslo, Norway, the Rolling Stones gave their first concert since the death of L'Wren Scott, who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend since 2001. Scott committed suicide in her New York City apartment on March 17, 2014. She was found hanged from a doorknob. The Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour of 2014 went on hiatus after Scott's death. The tour resumed in Oslo, Norway at Telenor Arena on May 26.
As previously reported, the Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour dates in Australia and New Zealand were postponed because of Scott's death. The concerts in Australia and New Zealand were originally supposed to take place from March 19 to April 5, 2014. The Rolling Stones have since announced the rescheduled concerts in Australia and New Zealand for their "14 on Fire" tour.
The new tour dates are from Oct. 25 to Nov. 22, 2014, and they include added concerts in the Australian cities of Perth (on Nov. 1, 2014) and Pokolbin (on Nov. 15, 2014). See the revised tour dates at the end of this article. Special guests for these concerts have also been confirmed as Jimmy Barnes for the Adelaide show and the Hunters & Collectors for the Auckland show.
Critics' reviews of the tour have been mostly positive.
Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, who was a special guest on the Rolling Stones' "50 and Counting" concerts in 2012 and 2013, has been a special guest on the Rolling Stones "14 on Fire" tour.
