Jason Aldean Cancels Shows Out Of Respect for Vegas Shooting Victims

Jason Aldean Cancels Shows Out Of Respect for Vegas Shooting Victims”

He plans to resume his tour in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on October 12.

The cancellations will affect three shows on Mr. Aldean's "They Don't Know" tour, all in Southern California.

The mass murderer and gunman Stephen Paddock aimed and open fired at the thousands of people attending the Route 91 Harvest - an annual festival that mainly celebrates country music - while he was positioned at a hotel room in the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel that he turned into an arsenal of multiple weapons and gun tripods. This he feels like to do to show the victims, their families and near ones, and their fans, his respect and condolence.

Aldean's wife, Brittany also posted a message on Instagram early Monday saying, "We are safe. our angels were definitely watching over us tonight".

The singer writes something has "changed" in the world, making it "the kind of place I am afraid to raise my children in". Among them were "anger", "fear" and "heartache".

The statement was Kerr's first in days following the incident, she captioned the note: "Took me a while to be able to write these words ... thank you to everyone who has reached out to Jason and [me] ... You guys have no idea how much you have helped get us through this tough time", the statement said.

Aldean claimed it had been an "emotional time" for everyone involved, so his team is taking a break to mourn the deaths of everyone who passed away.

"As a result of what happened in Las Vegas this week, we have made a decision to cancel this coming weekend's shows", part of a statement from Aldean reads. First and foremost, THANK YOU to the first responders. I hope everyone understands why we can't play this weekend and I'm sorry if anyone is disappointed. Fans will get a refund.
