TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Country star Jason Aldean is set to make an emotional return to the stage after cancelling tour dates following the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
The singer was onstage Oct. 1 when a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest festival, killing 58 people and leaving nearly 500 injured. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Aldean is set to resume his tour Thursday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He canceled shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and Anaheim, California, last week out of respect for the victims and to take time to mourn.
The singer visited shooting victims in a Las Vegas hospital Sunday. The day before, Aldean performed on "Saturday Night Live" in tribute to the victims.
