The Rolling Stones have officially rescheduled their Australia and New Zealand tour after Mick Jagger was forced to pull the plug on gigs following the sudden death of his girlfriend.

The British rockers had just landed in Australia last month (Mar14) and were preparing for a gig in Perth when news of designer L'Wren Scott's suicide in New York broke.

Jagger immediately scrapped a series of shows and flew to Los Angeles to help plan his lover's funeral.

On Friday (04Apr14), the rock star and his bandmates announced plans to return Down Under for rescheduled shows in October and November (14).
