Rolling Stones play first gig since L'Wren's death

The Rolling Stones have played their first gig since the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

The 'Brown Sugar' hitmakers, also made up of Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, resumed their '14 On Fire Tour' after giving Mick time to grieve following fashion designer L'Wren's suicide two months ago.

They took to the stage in Norway last night (26.05.14) playing in front of 23,000 people at Oslo's Telenor Arena, the band's first show in the country since 2007.

Speaking before the gig, former Stones member Mick Taylor told The Sun newspaper: ''We're all looking forward to it but we're a bit nervous. Mainly nervous for Mick,'' adding, ''We need to get the wheels turning again.''

But the legendary rockers had nothing to worry as the crowd went wild when Mick launched into 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', and the band powered through hits including 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll', 'Honky Tonk Woman', 'Paint It Black', 'Midnight Rambler', 'Miss You' and 'Gimme Shelter'.

Mick, 70, asked the audience: ''Are you feeling good, Oslo? Are you sure?''

Meanwhile, it was a day of celebration for Ronnie, who became a grandfather for the eighth time after his daughter Leah Wood gave birth to a baby boy, and he paid tribute to the new baby on stage, by coming out rocking his arms as if he was cradling the newborn.

He also congratulated Leah, along with husband Jack MacDonald and their four-year-old daughter Maggie, in a post on Twitter.

Ronnie, 66, tweeted: ''Congratulations to my daughter @MsLeahWood and Jack & Maggie - Baby Otis Sonny David MacDonald was born today! (sic)''
