Frontier Touring, promoters of the recently postponed Rolling Stones Australian tour, have released a statement to ticket holders regarding potential rescheduled dates, as well as offering refunds for those unhappy with the current state of affairs.
After confirming that the ’14 On Fire’ tour had been postponed in the wake of the death of Mick Jagger’s partner, L’Wren Scott, Frontier have released a new statement via Facebook, saying new dates for the Stones’ Australian tour are “being presently worked on” for both Australia and New Zealand. New shows will be announced “as soon as possible”.
Regarding refunds, the touring company still say that punters should hold onto their tickets until new dates are announced, but also confirm that a full refund is immediately available “via the ticketing agency you purchased from” for those who don’t wish to wait. You can read the full statement below.
News broke early yesterday that Scott, 49 — who had been dating Jagger, 70, for over 10 years — had been found dead in her apartment. After much speculation, the band officially cancelled the first show on the tour, set to take place in Perth, late yesterday afternoon, and the entire tour was postponed earlier today.
This morning Jagger posted a deeply personal and emotion statement on his official website, saying he is “still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way”.
