Playing at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last night, he made an emotional statement about the victims of what is now the worst mass shooting in recent United States history. That 11-minute shooting spree killed at least 58 people and wounded almost 500 others, but both Aldean and his fans displayed an indomitable spirit in his first show back since those events, with Aldean taking a few minutes to address the crowd. "You guys are gonna help us get through this", he said.
As you can see in the YouTube video below, Jason Aldean didn't hold back at all tonight in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
"I hope none of you guys ever experience anything like that. Even though people might not have physical scars, it's gonna be a mental thing for a lot of people for a long time". "But it's been really cool to see all the support, all the love that has been going on over the last 10 days or so because of what happened in Las Vegas". "We don't really care what you try to say, what you try to do to us".

He said that there is pan-India perception that wherever Rahul Gandhi goes for campaigning then Congress' defeat is guaranteed. He further added that "Gujarat has given the nation and world Mahatma Gandhi, and Sardar Patel".
He was playing at the Route 91 Harvest concert on October 1 when a gunman opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.
"I want this to not be something that's gonna be a downer for the rest of the night..." he concluded. "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, alright?" Aldean also sold shirts with the words "We Won't Back Down", with all proceeds going to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.
Last weekend he paid tribute to them on "Saturday Night Live" and hours later visited some of the more critically injured at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.
