Jason Aldean visits Las Vegas shooting survivors in hospital

Jason Aldean visits Las Vegas shooting survivors in hospital”

"Our extreme gratitude to Country Music Star Jason Aldean for visiting UMC today", the hospital captions a photo of the country singer on Facebook.

The Las Vegas tragedy became the deadliest mass shooting in American history, killing 58 people and wounding around 400.

Some of the casinos along the Las Vegas Strip dim their marquees signs for about 10 minutes Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in Las Vegas, to pay tribute to the victims who spent that much time under fire in the Las Vegas shooting on Sunday, Oct. 1.

A week after the Las Vegas country music festival massacre that killed 59 people and injured more than 500, Jason Aldean, who was onstage when the shooting began, returned to the city to visit survivors in the hospital.

The Georgia native was joined by his pregnant wife, Brittany Aldean, who marked their visit with an Instagram photo featuring them embracing in front of the Mandalay Bay, where Paddock shot at concertgoers from the 32nd floor.

The couple apparently were in town to meet with victims.

After his opening remarks, Aldean proceeded to perform Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers' classic song "I Won't Back Down" in a flawless tribute to the Las Vegas shooting victims and Petty, who passed away on Monday, Oct. 2 at age 66. "We will never forget".

Aldean visited Las Vegas just a day after he performed on "Saturday Night Live".

Aldean's cover of "I Won't Back Down" on SNL was pitch ideal and an incredibly moving way to end a tough week. On the show, he paid tribute to the victims of the mass shooting and the late rock superstar Tom Petty with one of Petty's songs. You can be sure that we are going to walk through these tough times together, every step of the way.

Aldean canceled three tour dates - scheduled for October 6, 7 and 8 - following the shooting, "out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans".
