Jason Aldean was on stage when the shooting started at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, and the singer just announced that because of what happened he won't be moving forward with his concerts scheduled for this weekend in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Anaheim, California.
"I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do," Jason shares. "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."
Jason plans to return to the stage next week in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
"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."
Finally he adds, "I want to say thank you for the outpouring of love from my friends and fans we have received over the last couple days. You guys have no idea how much you have helped get us through this tough time."
