Rolling Stones to resume tour in May after death of L’Wren Scott
London • The Rolling Stones are resuming a world tour after postponing several dates in the wake of the death of L’Wren Scott, girlfriend of singer Mick Jagger.
The band has announced new shows in Europe, starting May 26 in Oslo, Norway.
The Stones said Tuesday they also will play Portugal, Switzerland, Israel, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark as part of the 14 On Fire tour.
The band called off a seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand after fashion designer Scott was found dead in her New York apartment on March 17. The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled her death a suicide.
Scott, 49, had been Jagger’s companion since 2001.
Earlier, an award honoring emerging fashion designers has been named for Scott.
The award was created by The Art of Elysium, an organization that brings the arts to hospitalized children. The L’Wren Scott Amber Award honors both Scott, who grew up in Roy, Utah, and Amber, a child who had a brain tumor and who participated in The Art of Elysium’s fashion workshops for hospitalized kids.
The venture was announced by the New York company that handled the designer’s public relations, PR Consulting.
Meanwhile, various media outlets reported that Scott’s will left her $8 million Manhattan condo and her other personal possessions to Jagger.
