Jason Aldean Returns To Stage In Tulsa After Las Vegas Shooting

Jason Aldean

The country superstar returned to the stage for the first time since his performance abruptly ended when a gunman began firing on crowds October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Vegas, killing at least 58 people and injuring hundreds more.

Chris Young, Kane Brown, and DeeJay Silver - who were all with Jason and his band in Vegas - will also be at the show. As soon as Jason hit the stage, he performed for a bit and then felt like it was time to speak out about being back on the stage.

Jason Aldean's triumphant return to the stage included a message to domestic terrorists - "f*** you!" "A week in a half later they're in Tulsa finally getting to finish the Jason Aldean concert", the radio station writes on Facebook.

Last weekend he paid tribute to them on "Saturday Night Live" and hours later visited some of the more critically injured at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. "You guys are gonna help us get through this", he said. Jason was glad that they were able to keep the tour going after what happened in Las Vegas just less than two weeks ago.

"I hope none of you guys ever experience anything like that", Aldean told the Tulsa, Okla. crowd.

After that, Aldean went on and didn't hold back. He shared that their thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was there and he realizes that it will be a mental thing for people who were there. Ryan Guay and Lynzee Freund helped save a little girl's life during the shooting, and as People reports, Tulsa radio station K95.5 gave them tickets to Aldean's show on Thursday.

"Sometimes this country can be really divided, but it's been really cool to see all the love and support that's been going on after the last ten days or so".

Aldean called on his fans to resist the urge to live in fear, rallying for more of the kind of unity he says he's seen since the Las Vegas shooting.
