Mick Jagger's bandmates are confirming that they've got their singer's back.
Rolling Stones Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood are sending out messages to their Australian fans following the postponement of their tour.
Richards admits, "No-one saw this coming…Mick's always been my soul brother and we love him…we’re thick as thieves and we’re all feeling for the man…we really hate to disappoint our fans but we'll see everyone really soon."
Watts says, "Needless to say we are all completely shocked but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time. We intend to come back to Australia and New Zealand as soon as it proves possible."
Ronnie Wood shared, "This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time. Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can."
The Rolling Stones cancelled the Australian and New Zealand portion of their "14 On Fire" tour following the sudden death Monday of Mick's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott. The trek was supposed to begin this week with the band's first performance in Perth in nearly 20 years.
On Saturday the Stones were slated to play the grand re-opening concert at the Adelaide Oval, which would also have been their first show in Adelaide since 1995.
