The original tour of Australia and New Zealand was postponed last month due to the death of Mick Jagger's longtime girlfriend L'Wren Scott. The "Satisfaction" hitmakers had only just arrived in Perth when they received the news of the 46-year-old fashion designer's passing and quickly postponed the Perth date with the remainder of the tour quickly following suit.
The Rolling Stones recently announced an extended 14-city European tour leg, which will kick off May 26 in Oslo, Norway at Telenor Arena and wrap up July 3 at in Demark the Roskilde festival.
