No one expected to wake up on Monday morning to the horrific news of the mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas. Festival goers were enjoying country music, when a coward shot at them from a 32nd story window. 59 lives were  lost, and hundreds were injured.

Jason Aldean was on stage performing at the time the shooting started, and as anyone can imagine this tragedy has been hard for him to deal with as well.  He has announced he will be cancelling his next 3 tour dates, out of respect for the victims, and those who are now mourning loved ones. His tour will resume on October 12th, just two days before he is scheduled to play the Ford Center.

Here is his statement from Facebook:

As a result of what happened in Las Vegas this week, we have decided to cancel this coming weekend's shows. 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. Our plan is to resume the tour the following 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. I hope everyone understands why we can't play this weekend and I'm sorry if anyone is disappointed.

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.

Thank You and God Bless.
