Rolling Stones Cancel Perth Show, Jagger Releases Statement on L’Wren Scott

The Rolling Stones have cancelled tomorrow night’s show in Perth, Australia. A statement from the band reads:

Frontier Touring and Concerts West regret to announce that The Rolling Stones concert in Perth will not be going ahead as scheduled for Wednesday 19 March 2014.
 
No further information is available at this time, ticket holders are asked to hold on to their tickets until a further update is available. Ticket holders can check frontiertouring.com, facebook.com/frontiertouring and twitter.com/frontiertouring for updates.

The cancellation comes one day after Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, was found dead of an apparent suicide in New York City. Jagger released a statement on the incident yesterday after the New York Post published a story alleging that Jagger and Scott has split prior to Scott’s death:

The story in the New York Post re a split between Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott is 100 % untrue. 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.

UPDATE:

Jagger has released another statement on Scott’s death via The Rolling Stones’ Facebook page:

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.

She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.

I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received.

I will never forget her,
Mick

UPDATE #2:

The Rolling Stones have now postponed all of their Australia and New Zealand tour dates following Scott’s death.

I’d kill myself too if I had to bang that busted ol’ skeezer.

What a waste of sweet poon. Good for Mick to nail that as his age, gives me hope…

Joshua Katt: how immature, distasteful, and nasty can you get? You look a fool posting such insensitive jokes when a person has taken their life.

Actually, The remark I was referring to was made by “Keepin’ it Real”. Although Joshua’s comment isn’t much better. You guys are a pack of idiots.

what do you expect from the internet.
a bunch of sophmoric cogs in the machine of society, that tuck their balls and hide behind screen names, and POST THINGS THEY WOULD NEVER SAY.
words can be hurtful, said or written.
