The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.
Jagger released a separate statement on his Facebook page, in which he paid tribute to Scott:
I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.
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.
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,
