PARIS: The Rolling Stones Sunday said they will play Paris' Stade de France in June for the first time since 2007, after postponing a tour Down Under due to the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend.

The British band will play a single gig in France's national stadium in Paris on June 13 as part of their 14 On Fire tour, according to a statement from their French promoter.

The Stones already have a string of dates planned across Europe for June, including in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy.

Their promoter said Sunday several more European concerts would shortly be announced for May, June and July.

The news comes after the Stones postponed their tour of Australia and New Zealand on Tuesday after the shock death of Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

The grieving frontman is being comforted by his daughters in Los Angeles after the former model turned fashion designer was found hanged in her luxury apartment on Monday.

The band has promised to reschedule dates in Australia and New Zealand "as soon as possible".

The iconic rock outfit returned to the stage in late 2012 after years of absence to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a series of concerts in England and the United States.
