Jason Aldean plays first gig since Las Vegas shooting

Country singer Jason Aldean resumed his tour in Tulsa on Thursday nearly two weeks after the massacre in Las Vegas.

He went on to note the outpouring of support and care that come from across the US for those affected by the shooting.

The singer was onstage October 1 when a gunman sprayed bullets into the crowd at the outdoor Route 91 Harvest festival, killing 58 people and leaving almost 500 injured.

"I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do", Aldean said in a statement. He was performing at the time of the shooting that killed 58 people and injured over 500.

"I hope none of you guys ever experience anything like that. We don't really care what you try to say, what you try to do to us".

Sharapova downs Linette to reach Tianjin quarters
She saw off 71st-ranked Linette in just over 98 minutes to reach only her second quarter-final since her return to action. The former world number one bossed the second set, surging into a 4-0 lead as she wasted no time in dispatching Voegele.

Thursday night Jason Aldean got to finish what he started in Las Vegas.

Aldean, one of the best-known country singers in the USA, went on to call for national unity and praised the outpouring of support after the shooting. "Sometimes this country can be really divided, and that's a really unfortunate thing to see", he said.

The singer then directed his anger at those trying to make us live in fear. He explained that he thinks about the 58 people who lost their lives and he doesn't count that one a**hole who was doing the shooting in Las Vegas.

One day before visiting the victims, Aldean - who has sold 15 million albums and recorded 17 number one songs - performed on the comedy show Saturday Night Live to honour the late rock star Tom Petty. "It has been cool to see the love and support... if we could do that on a daily basis, the world would be a lot better place".
