Jason Aldean Cancels Upcoming Shows After Las Vegas Shooting

Jason Aldean has cancelled his upcoming shows following the shooting during his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

"As a result of what happened in Las Vegas this week, we have decided to cancel this upcoming weekend's shows," the country star said in a statement.

"I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do. It has been an emotional time for everyone involved this week, so we plan to take some time to mourn the ones we have lost and be close with our family and friends."

Aldean was performing his final song when Paddock began firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

"Our plan is to resume the tour the following week in Tulsa, Oklahoma," he added. "Our first time back onstage will be a very tough and emotional thing for us, but we will all get through it together and honor the people we lost by doing the only thing we know how to do — play our songs for them."

"I hope everyone understands why we can't play this weekend and I'm sorry if anyone is disappointed."
