Jason Aldean and his team have decided to cancel their shows in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Anaheim scheduled this October 6-8 following the Las Vegas shooting that killed 59 concertgoers and injured more than 500 individuals. It is worth noting that the tragic incident took place during his closing performance for the Route 91 Country Music Festival on Sunday night.

Mass shooting in Las Vegas

The country singer was in the middle of his last set when gunfire was heard in the open field where thousands of people were watching the music event. Although he initially carried on with the performance, Jason Aldean quickly stormed off the stage after hearing the second round of shooting.

Fortunately, the singer and his crew survived the deadly attack and reassured the fans that they were not hurt in the incident. The "Big Green Tractor" artist described the experience "beyond horrific" and admitted that it had left him speechless and stunned.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight," he wrote. "It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night."

Singer cancels concert shows to mourn death of 59 concertgoers

In the wake of Las Vegas shooting, Jason Aldean announced his decision to cancel his three-day show in California as a sign of respect to the victims and the bereaved families of those who did not survive the deadly attack.

He thought it was the right thing to do in this difficult and emotional time for the people affected.

"We plan to take some time to mourn the ones we have lost and be close with our family and friends," he explained.

Jason Aldean's concert tour will resume on October 12 in Oklahoma. But despite the short breather to reflect on what happened, the singer is confident that their first performance since the incident will be challenging and emotional for the entire team.

He, however, is hopeful that they will get through the pain and will be able to honor the lives lost in the mass shooting through their music. The 40-year-old artist ended his announcement with an apology to their fans for the last minute cancellation of their California shows.

Authorities identified a certain Stephen Craig Paddock as the person responsible for the Las Vegas shooting.

The 64-year-old retired accountant reportedly fired from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The perpetrator was found dead in his hotel room, where the police authorities discovered weapons and explosives.
