Jason Aldean is taking a much needed break from performing this coming weekend. He was on stage when the shooting started at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas and is very shaken by the tragedy.
The country superstar just announced he will not be performing 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." He plans to return to the stage next week in Tulsa, Oklahoma but notes, "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."
