An official statement released this evening (March 18) states that the band "wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement." The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.

Earlier today, Jagger released a statement which said he was "struggling" to understand his partner's death and that he had been "touched" by tributes and messages of support he has received.
