The Latest: Country star resumes tour after Vegas shooting

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. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. That 11-minute shooting spree killed at least 58 people and wounded almost 500 others, but both Aldean and his fans displayed an indomitable spirit in his first show back since those events, with Aldean taking a few minutes to address the crowd. "We don't really care what you try to say, what you try to do to us". After beginning his set, Aldean paused to talk to the audience saying: "The one thing that's going to help more than anything is playing for you guys tonight".

Thursday night in Tulsa, Jason Aldean plays his very first concert since his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas was interrupted by gunfire.

Aldean, one of the best-known country singers in the U.S., went on to call for national unity and praised the outpouring of support after the shooting.

"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". He explained that he thinks about the 58 people who lost their lives and he doesn't count that one a**hole who was doing the shooting in Las Vegas.

Aldean said he won't be shaken by anyone trying to make Americans live in fear.

Afterward, posting on Instagram, Brittany described the experience as "surreal". The day before, Aldean performed on "Saturday Night Live" in tribute to the victims.
