ALDEAN RESUMES HIS TOUR AFTER VEGAS MASSACRE
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.
