Sir Mick Jagger - Rolling Stones cancel Perth gig

The Rolling Stones have cancelled their gig in Perth following the death of Sir Mick Jagger's long-term partner L'Wren Scott.

The band have axed the first show of their Australian leg tomorrow night (19.03.14) in order to give the frontman time to grieve after the fashion designer was found dead yesterday (17.03.14).

A statement released by organisers Frontier Touring said the first concert of the '14 On Fire tour' would not be going ahead.

It added: ''Please note no further information is available at this time. Ticket holders are asked to hold on to their tickets until a further update is available.''

However, it is possible all six planned shows in the country may need to be postponed to allow Sir Mick, 70, to return to New York to be with his family at this tragic time.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''They may have to cancel the whole run in Australia depending on how Mick is.''

The group - consisting also of Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - are set to head to Auckland in New Zealand on April 5, but the future of that show still hangs in the balance.

L'Wren, 47 - who has dated Sir Mick since 2001 - was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob in her home in Manhattan, New York City yesterday morning, having apparently taken her own life.

However, the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the exact cause of death.
