Coun­try star re­sumes tour paused in wake of shoot­ing

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - #VEGASSTRONG: HOPE AND HEALING -

Coun­try star Ja­son Aldean made an emo­tional re­turn to the stage Thurs­day af­ter can­cel­ing 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.

Aldean can­celed shows in Los An­ge­les, San Diego and Ana­heim, Cal­i­for­nia, last week out of re­spect for the vic­tims and to take time to mourn. He re­sumed his tour Thurs­day in Tulsa, Ok­la­homa.

The singer vis­ited shoot­ing vic­tims in a Las Ve­gas hospi­tal Sun­day. The day be­fore, Aldean per­formed Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” on “Satur­day Night Live” in trib­ute to the vic­tims and the late rock su­per­star.

Petty died the day af­ter the shoot­ing in Los An­ge­les.
