OKLA.» Coun­try star Ja­son TULSA, Aldean re­turned to the stage Thurs­day night af­ter can­cel­ing tour dates be­cause of 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 is the dead­li­est mass shoot­ing in mod­ern U.S. his­tory.

Aldean re­sumed his tour in Tulsa. He can­celed shows in Los An­ge­les, San Diego and Ana­heim, Calif., last week out of re­spect for vic­tims and to take time to mourn. The singer vis­ited shoot­ing vic­tims still 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.
