Jason Aldean Addresses His First Audience Since Las Vegas Shooting

Jason Aldean Addresses His First Audience Since Las Vegas Shooting

That 11-minute shooting spree killed at least 58 people and wounded almost 500 others, but both Aldean and his fans displayed an indomitable spirit in his first show back since those events, with Aldean taking a few minutes to address the crowd.

Country singer Jason Aldean resumed his tour in Tulsa on Thursday nearly two weeks after the massacre in Las Vegas. "A week in a half later they're in Tulsa finally getting to finish the Jason Aldean concert", the radio station writes on Facebook.

Aldean was on stage at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival when a gunman opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. Ryan Guay and Lynzee Freund helped save a little girl's life during the shooting, and as People reports, Tulsa radio station K95.5 gave them tickets to Aldean's show on Thursday.

"Every day that goes by, we think about the 58 people that lost their lives", Jason told the crowd. "You guys are going to help us get through this as much as we are going to help you guys".

"... Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their family", Jason went on, "and everybody else who was injured in that thing and everybody who just was there, because even though people may not have physical scars, it's gonna be a mental thing for a lot of people for a long time".

Three songs into his Thursday performance in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Aldean said he wanted fans to enjoy the show concertgoers at the Route 91 festival didn't get to see because of the shooting. After beginning his set, Aldean paused to talk to the audience saying: "The one thing that's going to help more than anything is playing for you guys tonight".

Aldean said he won't be shaken by anyone trying to make Americans live in fear. He confessed it had been a struggle to physically stage the show, since most of his equipment is still part of a crime scene.
