Jason Aldean is putting his tour on hold “out of respect” for victims of a mass shooting that that sent his Las Vegas show into a deadly frenzy Sunday night (Oct. 1).

The country singer has announced he will cancel a trio of tour dates in the wake of the the Route 91 Harvest Festival massacre, which left 59 dead and more than 500 injured. Aldean will not perform Oct. 6 in Los Angeles, Oct. 7 in San Diego or Oct. 8 in Anaheim, Calif. Refunds will be given.

Aldean, who will resume touring Oct. 12 in Tulsa, released a statement explaining his decision:

As a result of what happened in Las Vegas this week, we have decided to cancel this coming weekend’s shows. I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do. It has been an emotional time for everyone involved this week, so we plan to take some time to mourn the ones we have lost and be close with our family and friends. Our plan is to resume the tour the following week in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our first time back onstage will be a very tough and emotional thing for us, but we will all get through it together and honor the people we lost by doing the only thing we know how to do – play our songs for them. I hope everyone understands why we can’t play this weekend and I’m sorry if anyone is disappointed.

I want to say thank you for the outpouring of love from my friends and fans we have received over the last couple days. You guys have no idea how much you have helped get us through this tough time.”
