Britney returns to stage

Britney returns to stage”

While many shows have been cancelled or postponed in the wake of the horrific mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Sunday night, Britney Spears announced via Twitter Thursday evening that she will return to her residency on October 11 as planned.

"We'll get through this together", Spears wrote.

Other fellow Las Vegas performers, including Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez, have also shown their support for the city in the wake of the attack.

Though she didn't mention the shooting explicitly, the mom of two's poignant message was clearly referring to the recent tragedy.

This was Britney's second post since the Las Vegas shooting having once called it "her second home".

Footage captured by concertgoers showed the star telling her security team that she was anxious the stage crasher had a gun.

The image was emblazoned with the words "Pray For Las Vegas" and captioned: 'Completely heartbroken over the news this morning.

The Toxic hitmaker has been performing at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood since 2013, and like many Sin City performers she was left considering what to do following Sunday's massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. "Keeping the victims of last night's tragedy in Las Vegas in my prayers #PrayForLasVegas". In April Spears confirmed through her manager that her residency would end on December 31, 2017.

And despite the devastating events that took place, the singer shared a post to remind her fans that she is not going to live in fear and the show will go on.
