Country Star Jason Aldean Resumes Tour After Mass Shooting – NBC 5 Dallas

Country star Jason Aldean brought the party back Thursday in his return to the stage following the deadly mass shooting that broke out while he was performing in Las Vegas, but the fun was tempered by the sting of the tragedy.

Three songs into his show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the singer launched into a five-minute speech that honored the 58 killed and nearly 500 hurt in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. But Aldean took a defiant tone in telling concertgoers to resist living in fear, and he called for more of the national unity he’s seen since the attack.

“These people are going to continue to try to hold us down,” Aldean said. “To those people that keep trying to do that, I say (expletive) you, we don’t really care.”

Fans agreed. They pumped their fists and held up American flags as Aldean continued.

Jason Aldean returns to Las Vegas a week after mass shooting

Country star Jason Aldean has returned to Las Vegas a week after a mass shooting during his performance at a music festival left 58 people dead and hundreds more hurt.

University Medical Center of Southern Nevada thanked Aldean on Facebook Sunday for visiting with survivors. The hospital says Aldean’s visit “helped heal hearts and cheer those who were wounded.”

Aldean’s wife, Brittany, posted a picture of herself and Jason on Instagram looking at the Mandalay Bay resort, where shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd from his hotel room Oct. 1. She wrote in the caption that seeing the strength of victims helped the couple “try to begin the healing process.”

The visit came a day after Aldean performed on “Saturday Night Live” in tribute to the victims.

KALAMAZOO, MI — A new date has been set for a hearing on a motion to suppress Jason Dalton’s statements in the Kalamazoo mass shooting.
