Jason Aldean Returns to Las Vegas For First Concert Since 2017 Shooting

Jason Aldean returned to Las Vegas for the first time since the Route 91 Harvest Festival in October 2017 when a gunman opened fire on the crowd.

The attack left 58 people dead and wounded 413 others; an additional victim recently died from injuries sustained that night

Aldean addressed survivors of the attack shortly into his set.

“Tonight’s a really special night for us. We got a lot of people in the crowd who are family to us, so welcome everyone from Route 91. We’re glad to see you guys out,” he said. “It’s good to be back here in Las Vegas. It’s our first show back and make no mistake about it tonight, we came back to blow it out for you guys tonight…Let’s finish what we started, what y’all think?”

In a touching moment caught on the big screen a fan in a wheelchair was seen being hoisted by the crowd into the air.

Jason saw the video and shared it saying:

This might have been the coolest thing I have ever seen. Thank you Las Vegas and our Route 91 family for showing us the love this weekend. Let’s do it 1 more time tonite!
