TULSA, OKLA. » Coun­try star Ja­son Aldean is set to make an emo­tional re­turn to the stage af­ter can­celling tour dates fol­low­ing the mass shoot­ing in Las Ve­gas.

The singer was on­stage Oct. 1 when a gun­man sprayed bul­lets into the crowd at the out­door Route 91 Har­vest fes­ti­val, killing 58 peo­ple and leav­ing nearly 500 in­jured. It was the dead­li­est mass shoot­ing in mod­ern U.S. his­tory.
