Sydney - The Rolling Stones on Friday announced their tour of Australia and New Zealand, which was postponed after the suicide of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, has been rescheduled for October and November.

"The rescheduled Australia/New Zealand tour will take place between 25 October to 22 November 2014," the veteran British rockers said on the band's website, with exact dates for each city to be released soon.

"The Rolling Stones wish to thank their fans in Australia and New Zealand for their patience and understanding at this time."

Jagger's American girlfriend L'Wren Scott committed suicide in her New York apartment on 17 March, just after the band arrived in Perth for the first date of their "14 On Fire" tour Down Under.

They were also due to play in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.

Jagger had been with Scott for 13 years. A coroner said the model-turned-fashion designer, who was 49, had hanged herself.
