Scott was found dead in her New York apartment on March 17. She and Jagger had been in a relationship since 2001, and according to the New York Daily News, she left her entire estate, estimated at $9 million, to the musician.

“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” Jagger wrote on his website. "We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. ... I will never forget her."

The tour will resume in Oslo, Norway on May 26 and will include 14 shows across Europe in May, June and July. The band has said it will reschedule the canceled Australia and New Zealand shows, but no dates have yet been announced.
