The Rolling Stones will restart their world tour next month in what will be the group’s first concerts since the death of L’Wren Scott, the partner of frontman Mick Jagger.
The legendary British rockers have announced 14 dates across Europe and Israel in May, June and July as part of the “14 On Fire” trek. The itinerary includes a mix of festivals, stadiums and arenas, and kicks-off with a May 26 date at Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway.
The tour will take the band to Lisbon’s Rock in Rio Festival, Tel Aviv’s HaYarkon Park, Madrid’s Bernabéu Stadium and Denmark’s Roskilde Festival.
The Stones had postponed their tour of Australia and New Zealand following the March 17 suicide of Scott. The veteran group and multiple parties involved in staging that tour could be out of pocket by as much as $10 million, industry sources tell Billboard.
Australian promoter Michael Gudinski, whose Frontier Touring is presenting the band Down Under with AEG Live, says talks are underway to bring the band back in October/November.
“14 On Fire” is largely a continuation of last year's 50 & Counting Tour, which grossed $126 million from 23 shows in North America, along with appearances at London's Hyde Park and the Glastonbury Festival.
On the upcoming tour dates, the band has vowed to play a set “packed full of classic Stones hits” such as “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumping Jack Flash”, ”Tumbling Dice”, “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, plus a couple of “unexpected gems.”
