The band were forced to reschedule the dates following the apparent suicide of Jagger's partner on Monday (March 17). A list of the dates affected by the postponement can be found below.
Promoters Frontier Touring have urged fans with tickets to hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled shows, which they claim will come in October and November, though no specific dates have yet been announced.
"If the new dates are not suitable, rest assured you will be able to secure a refund," a spokesperson for Frontier Touring told The Guardian. "While we encourage fans to hold on to their tickets, the option to secure a refund is now available to you via the official ticketing agency you purchased from."
The postponed shows are:
Perth Arena (March 19)
Adelaide Oval (22)
Sydney Allphones Arena (25)
Melbourne Rod Laver Arena (28)
Hanging Rock Macedon Ranges (30)
Brisbane Entertainment Centre (April 2)

Earlier this week, Jagger released a statement which said he was "struggling" to understand his partner's death and that he had been "touched" by tributes and messages of support he has received.
