Jason Aldean Resumes Tour, Performs First Concert Since Las Vegas Shooting

Jason Aldean

Aldean resumed his tour Thursday in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Thousands of people are headed to the BOK Center to see country superstar Jason Aldean, and Thursday's concert is his first since a gunman opened fire, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 last week while Aldean was on stage. "To those people that keep trying to do that, I say (expletive) you, we don't really care".

And while there are police on scene, the fans are just excited to be here for an emotional evening. The Georgia native is one of country music's biggest stars, touring in support of his album "They Don't Know", which debuted atop the Billboard 200 in 2016.

The singer visited shooting victims still in a Las Vegas hospital Sunday.

"Definitely a sad thing that occurred and we definitely wanna pray for people out there", said concertgoer Colton Washington.

"I want this not to be something that's going to be a downer for the rest of the night", Aldean, 40, told the audience as seen in video captured at the show. "A week in a half later they're in Tulsa finally getting to finish the Jason Aldean concert", the radio station wrote on Facebook.

Captain Carlisle said they had extra officers out because of the Vegas shooting.

He said their officers are well trained and prepared for anything. Others hadn't planned to attend but thought it too important to miss.

Aldean gave fans the show they wanted. A few previously scheduled concerts were canceled out of respect for the victims and for the crew to process what had happened.
