The Rolling Stones resumed their world tour last night (May 26), which was suspended in March after the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

The band played to a sold-out crowd of 23,000 at Oslo's Telenor Arena, with a show that lasted over two hours, Reuters reports.

The date was the first night of a European tour, which will now go to Lisbon and then Zurich.

Earlier this year, the band postponed dates in Australia and New Zealand to mourn Jagger's girlfriend, the fashion designer L'Wren Scott who committed suicide in her apartment in New York.

Following news of the death, Jagger released a statement saying that he was struggling to understand "how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way."

A service was held for Scott in St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, where Jagger sung Bob Dylan's 'Just Like A Woman' in tribute.

The Rolling Stones tour continues in Lisbon, Portugal on May 29.

The Rolling Stones played:

'Jumpin' Jack Flash'
'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It)' ?
'All Down The Line' ?
'Tumbling Dice'
'Worried About You'
'Doom And Gloom'
