The tour was postponed in March after the death of Sir Mick Jagger's partner, the 49-year-old American designer L'Wren Scott.

The band has announced on its website the 14 on Fire tour of Australia and New Zealand has been rescheduled for 25 October to 22 November. Exact dates are still to be confirmed.

Ticket holders of the original concerts have been asked to keep their tickets.

Ms Scott was found dead by her assistant in her New York apartment on 17 March. The medical examiner's office ruled that the former fashion model and stylist had committed suicide.
