To honor the victims of the October 1 massacre the country singer canceled the past ten days of scheduled shows and was glad to return to the stage. After beginning his set, Aldean paused to talk to the audience saying: “The one thing that’s going to help more than anything is playing for you guys tonight. Thank you for allowing us to be here tonight.”
