The Rolling Stones are resuming a world tour after postponing several dates in the wake of the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott.

The band has announced new shows in Europe, starting May 26 in Oslo, Norway.

The Stones said Tuesday they also will play Portugal, Switzerland, Israel, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark as part of the 14 On Fire tour.

The band called off a seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand after fashion designer Scott was found dead in her New York apartment on March 17. The New York City medical examiner's office ruled her death a suicide.

Scott, 49, had been Jagger's companion since 2001. He paid tribute to her in a statement, calling her "my lover and best friend" and adding, "I will never forget her."

A private funeral service was held for Scott last week in Los Angeles.
