On May 29, 2014, the Rolling Stones were joined on stage by Bruce Springsteen and Gary Clark Jr. in separate songs during the Rolling Stones' set at the Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal. According to the Rolling Stones fan site It's Only Rock and Roll, Springsteen performed "Tumbling Dice" with the Stones, while Clark joined the band on stage for "Respectable." Fans on the site also reported that the Rolling Stones did not begin their set until 11:50 p.m. Western European Time and ended the show at approximately 2 a.m. Western European Time. (See the set list at the end of this article.)

Springsteen and Clark also performed with the Rolling Stones during the Rolling Stones' concert in Newark, N.J., on Dec. 15, 2012. The concert was televised as a pay-per-view event and featured other special guests such as John Mayer, the Black Keys and Lady Gaga.

The 2014 Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon is a five-day event. The Rolling Stones headlined on the second day. Other performers at the festival include Justin Timberlake, Robbie Williams, Linkin Park, Lorde, Arcade Fire and Queens of the Stone Age.

A fan's review on It's Only Rock and Roll reported that the crowd's energy level at the Rolling Stones' Rock in Rio show would have been better if the concert had started earlier that night. Dean Goodman said in his review: "The audience reaction might have been more lively if the show had taken place at a decent hour. Either start the whole thing early, or bump Gary Clark Jr. He is a great guest, but boring otherwise." At the 2014 Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Clark had performed a separate set before the Rolling Stones.

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.

The Rolling Stones' official YouTube channel posted a clip of the band performing "Jumpin' Jack Flash" at the Oslo concert.

At the concert in Oslo, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards sang lead vocals on "Can't Be Seen," a song rarely performed by the band in concert. During recent Rolling Stones concerts, Richards sings lead vocals on "Happy," "You've Got the Silver," "Before They Make Me Run" and/or "One More Shot." Richards performed the "Can't Be Seen" again at the Rock in Rio concert in Lisbon, which may be a sign that the song will become a semi-regular part of this tour's set list.

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.

The Rolling Stones launched the "14 on Fire" tour on Feb. 21, 2014, at Du Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

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.
