The Rolling Stones will resume their world tour in May following the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.

The Stones will play 14 shows across Europe in May, June and July as part of their 14 On Fire tour, kicking off in Oslo, Norway, on May 26.

They cancelled seven dates in Australia and New Zealand following L’Wren Scott’s death on March 17.

L’Wren Scott took her own life, New York authorities have ruled.

According to tour organizers, “every effort” is being made to reschedule the postponed dates to October and November.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood last played together in Singapore on March 15.

The European leg of the Stones’ current tour will see them play at the Stade de France in Paris on June 13 and at the Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid 12 days later.

Other confirmed dates include appearances at the Lisbon incarnation of the Rock in Rio festival on May 29 and the Roskilde Festival in Denmark on July 3.

Sinead O’Connor announces she has cancelled the remaining dates of her world tour, saying she is still recovering from a “very serious breakdown”.

In a statement on her official website, Sinead O’Connor, 45, said she had scrapped all concerts this year due to her bipolar disorder.

Sinead Connor’s website has now been deleted along with her Twitter account.

A spokesman said: “We have had nothing confirmed yet but are working on the assumption that the statement on her website is correct.”

In the statement, Sinead O’Connor, 45, said she was very “unwell” and it was with “enormous regret” that she had to make the decision.


Sinead O’Connor wrote: “As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour but didn’t want to <<fail>> or let anyone down as the tour was already booked to coincide with album release.

“So very stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am. I apologize sincerely for any difficulties this may cause.”

Sinead O’Connor released her new critically acclaimed album How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? in February.

Last December, Sinead O’Connor announced she had split from her therapist husband Barry Herridge after 16 days of marriage.

Sinead O’Connor also said she was still hoping to appear at the Curtis Mayfield tribute concert at The Lincoln Center in New York in July.
