UPDATE: "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," the band tells E! News in a statement. "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 have canceled the first date of their Australian tour after the death of fashion designer L'Wren Scott, lead singer Mick Jagger's girlfriend of 13 years. The band was scheduled to play in Perth on Wednesday. No further information is available at this time, the concert promoter told E! News Tuesday. Attendees are asked to hold on to their tickets until a further update is available.
The Rolling Stones are slated to perform in Sydney, Melbourne and Macedon later this month. The group also has two gigs lined up in Brisbane and Auckland, New Zealand, in April. The band will then travel to Europe in June, with concerts scheduled in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Belgium.
Scott was found dead in her New York City apartment Monday morning. Upon hearing the sad news, Jagger's rep said the singer was "completely shocked and devastated" by Scott's apparent suicide.
The "Doom and Gloom" singer's rep also slammed a story claiming the couple had split before Scott hanged herself. "The story in the New York Post re a split between Mick Jagger and L'Wren Scott is 100 percent untrue," the rep told E! News in a statement Monday. "There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It is a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick."
One insider told E! News that, as far as she knew, Jagger and Scott were still together.
"They loved each other and were wonderful together," the source revealed. "They had a very cool relationship and a deep respect for one another. They have been together forever and there was no sign that things were ever changing in that regard."
