Finishing Rolling Stones' last tour in Asia, the band is next to tour Australia, including Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Brisbane and Auckland. Due to the death of frontman Mick Jagger's girlfriend, however, the band's show on Perth was reportedly cancelled.
The private jet of the rock band The Rolling Stones, which has painted on the side the band's trademark tongue logo, sits on the tarmac at Perth airport March 18, 2014. Celebrated fashion designer L'Wren Scott, the girlfriend of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, was found dead from an apparent suicide in her Manhattan apartment on Monday, police said.
According to One News, the cancellation of Rolling Stones' first show in Australia wasn't yet confirmed, but there were reports that the band had checked out of the hotel where they were staying, and that the show had been called off. The band is supposed to perform on March 19 in Perth Arena.
For Rolling Stone's 2014 "14 On Fire" tour, the band is reported to have a formula, which is to "deliver classics as well as one new song - "Doom and Gloom." There are also the two-song piece from Keith Richards and the performance of "Midnight Rambler" with former guitarist Mick Taylor.
Mick Taylor had left Rolling Stones in December 1974. According to Taylor's wiki page, since he had resigned from the band, the guitarist was able to work with numerous other artists and was able to release solo albums.
This time, however, Taylor is back with the band for the "14 On Fire" tour.
The Rolling Stones has been in the music industry since 1962, noted for the band members' long hairs and soon identified for countering the culture of the 1960s. The band is also known with their trademark tongue logo.
