The Rolling Stones have cancelled the first date of their Australian tour after the death of Mick Jaggar's girlfriend, the US fashion designer L'Wren Scott.

The band were due to play Perth tomorrow night (March 19) but according to the BBC, the date has now been pulled with ticketholders being asked to keep hold of their tickets until further information is available.

The band have five more dates booked in Australia – the next of which is Sydney on March 25.

Scott was found by her assistant at 10am local time in her flat in New York in an apparent suicide.

Yesterday, a spokesperson for Jagger said he was "completely shocked and devastated" by her death. The singer began dating Scott in 2001.

Later yesterday, a spokesperson also denied a report in the New York Post that the pair had recently ended their relationship. "The story in the New York Post re a split between Mick Jagger and L'Wren Scott is 100 per cent untrue," said his spokeswoman. "There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It is a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick."

Scott was found dead by her assistant 90 minutes after sending her a text message asking her to come to her Manhattan apartment. Police said there was no sign of foul play and no note was found.

Tributes to the designer flooded in from the fashion and entertainment world, with Madonna stating: "This is a horrible and tragic loss. I'm so upset. I loved L'Wren's work and she was always so generous with me."

Following the date in Sydney, The Stones are due to continue their On Fire tour in Melbourne and Macedon later this month before playing two dates in Brisbane and Auckland, New Zealand, in April. Concerts are then planned in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Belgium.
