Still no word Rolling Stones tour

There is still no official word on reports The Rolling Stones have cancelled their first Australian concert, after the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.

A spokeswoman for Frontier Touring said on Tuesday afternoon there was “no information regarding the tour”, which was scheduled to kick off in Perth on Wednesday.

“If there are any updates they will be put up on the Frontier Touring website Facebook and Twitter feeds as soon as possible,” she said.

She also denied news reports Frontier had planned to make an announcement about the Stones tour at noon (AEDT) in Perth on Tuesday.

“To my knowledge there is no press conference,” she told AAP. “I’m not sure where that came from.”

Ticket holders for the Stones’ Australian concerts are fearful the gigs will be called off in the wake of the death of Jagger’s girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.

Scott, a fashion designer whose clients included Madonna and Nicole Kidman, was found dead in her New York apartment on Monday morning (Tuesday NZT).

The Rolling Stones arrived in Perth on Monday for the Australian leg of their 14 On Fire tour to mark their 50th anniversary. They were set to play Auckland on 5 April.

There are unconfirmed reports the band has left the Perth Hyatt Hotel and that Jagger is already on his way back to New York.

Meanwhile, Jagger’s daughter, Georgia May, has pulled out of Melbourne Fashion Week.

The 22-year-old was due to showcase Camilla Franks’ collection, but the Sydney-based designer announced the model would miss the event.

“We offer our sincere condolences to Ms Jagger and her family,” the Camilla label said in a statement on Tuesday.
