It was Jason Aldean’s first time playing Las Vegas since the Route 91 tragedy in 2017 where he was on stage when a shooter shot and killed 58 people attending the country music festival.
According to The Las Vegas Review, Jason told the crowd at Park MGM’s Theater, “It’s a real special night for us. We got a lotta people in the crowd tonight who are family to us, so welcome out everybody. It’s good to be back in Las Vegas. This is our first show back, and make no mistake about it, we came back to blow it out for you tonight.”
There was also a moving moment when a fan in a wheelchair was raised above the audience, which Aldean shared on Instagram. He wrote, “This might have been the coolest thing I have ever seen. Thank you Las Vegas and our Route 91 family for showing us the love this weekend. Let’s do it 1 more time tonite!”
