  • Jason Aldean Visits Local Las Vegas Shooting Victim in Hospital

His impressive video intro rolled, and Aldean burst onstage to start the show with his current single that's both the name of the tour and the title of his latest record.

Country music star Jason Aldean took the stage in Tulsa Thursday (Oct. 12) for the first time since the deadly shooting in Las Vegas.

Country singer Jason Aldean will resume his "They Don't Know" tour in Tulsa after the Las Vegas massacre. Thursday night's (Oct. 12) concert was his first since the tragedy at the Route 91 Harvest festival on October 1 that claimed the lives of 58 fans.

Aldean has repeatedly voiced dismay at the carnage but steered clear of discussion on gun control and other political issues since the shooting, which was the deadliest in modern U.S. history.

So at Tulsa's BOK Center, 11 days after that Vegas show, Aldean was back where he belonged. "It's been a really tough thing to deal with for all of us up here, and I think the one thing that's probably gonna help us more than anything is playing for you guys tonight, so thank y'all so much for coming out". "Thank you for allowing us to be here tonight". "We don't really care what you try to say, what you try to do to us".

Aldean, whose music often speaks of "forgotten" Americans in rural areas, told the crowd to cheers: "Even though sometimes the United States may seem really divided, we seem like we're fighting with each other, at the end of the day this is the best country in the world".

Jason said the 58 people killed are always on his mind but he also thinks about fans who weren't shot but were traumatized by the experience. "I don't really count that a****** that was doing the shooting for 59, I count the 58", he added, as the crowd roared approval. "I want to play the show for you guys that the people in Las Vegas came to see and didn't get a chance to, all right?"

Aldean said he won't be shaken by anyone trying to make Americans live in fear.
