Rolling Stones Resumes Tour in Oslo

According to the New York Times, the Stones played the first concert of their European tour at the Telenor Arena in Oslo. It was the group's first concert since the death of the fashion designer L'Wren Scott, who was also the girlfriend of the band's singer, Mick Jagger. At the time of Ms. Scott's death, which was ruled a suicide, the Stones were about to begin a tour of Australia and New Zealand. Those concerts were postponed until October and November.

Jagger, 70, wearing a tight black shirt and jeans for most of the late-night show in front of more than 20,000 spectators, said he was happy to be back performing in the Nordic city where the band first played on a tour in 1965.

Monday night's concert, with hits including "Satisfaction", "Brown Sugar" and "Sympathy for the Devil," was the first of a European tour that will now go to Lisbon and then Zurich.

The current leg of the tour includes 14 shows over the next five weeks, all in Europe except for a concert in Tel Aviv on June 4. Roger Waters and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd have asked the Stones to cancel the Tel Aviv date as part of a boycott of Israel in support of Palestinians; the Stones have neither canceled the date nor responded publicly.
