The Rolling Stones Return for First Show Since L’Wren Scott’s Death

By Brian Ives 

The Rolling Stones returned to the road yesterday (May 26) for the first time since the death of Mick Jagger‘s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.

Yesterday’s show in Oslo, Norway, was the first show since Scott’s passing. Swedish newspaper Goteborgs-Posten  quoted Jagger as saying from the stage, “It’s good to be back, on with the show.”

None of the press covering the show reported any other reference to Scott, but her death gave gravitas to some of the songs, including “Worried About You.”

Jagger seemed to be in good spirits from all reports. When discussing the song that fans voted on for setlist inclusion (“Let’s Spend the Night Together”), the BBC reported that he joked that the audience actually voted for A-ha’s “Take on Me,” but it was too high pitched for him to sing (although the rather high-pitched songs “Emotional Rescue” and “Miss You” both made the setlist).

Scott died of an apparent suicide on March 17, and after that, the Stones postponed a number of tour dates.

The Rolling Stones’ next performance will be on May 29 at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil.

Here’s the setlist from last night’s show:
