Mick Jagger stepped out to a sold-out crowd of 23,000 as he returned to the stage for the first time since the death of his long-term girlfriend L”Wren Scott.
On Monday, the Rolling Stones resumed their world tour, wowing fans at the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway with an energetic two-hour set.
Mick, 70, looked at home as he performed alongside his bandmates Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts for the first time since March.
Earlier that day, he shared a photograph of himself on Twitter, writing: “Had a beautiful walk in Frogner Park, Oslo, yesterday. Looking forward to the first show!”
It has been two months since the Rolling Stones announced they were postponing their tour in order to give frontman Mick some personal time to grieve the passing of L”Wren.
“We wish to thank all of our fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement,” the band said in a statement.
One day after fashion designer L”Wren was found dead in her New York apartment after committing suicide, Mick broke his silence in an emotional Facebook message.
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” he said.
“We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.”
He added: “I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her, Mick.”
