ROLLING STONES CANCEL AUSTRALIAN TOUR AS JAGGER RUSHES BACK TO NEW YORK
Mick Jagger’s partner of more than 10 years, New York fashion designer L’Wren Scott, was found dead in her luxury Manahttan apartment on March 17, 2014. She committed suicide at the age of 49, Jagger aged 70 at the time.
It was reported that her fashion company had debts of over US$5million and she put a mortgage, unbeknown to Jagger, of over $1 million on her almost $5 million apartment, said to have been paid for by the Rolling Stones frontman.
The Rolling Stones had just arrived on their private jet in Perth to kick off an Australian and New Zealand tour. Mick Jagger quickly flew back to New York and the tour was rescheduled for October-November of 2014.
L’Wren Scott’s small, private funeral service was held at Hollywood Forever Cemetry in Los Angeles. At a later packed memorial service at St Bartholomew’s Church in New York, Mick Jagger sung the Bob Dylan song Just Like A Woman in tribute.
The Australian tour was rescheduled and then cancelled after Mick Jagger was beset by throat problems.
