Country music singer Jason Aldean poses at the 2017 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee June 7, 2017. He was performing at the time of the shooting that killed 58 people and injured over 500.

On Sunday, Aldean returned to Las Vegas exactly one week after the shooting with his pregnant wife Brittany to visit with hospitalized survivors of the shooting.

Jason Aldean took the stage Thursday night in Oklahoma for the first time since a man opened fire while he was on stage during an outdoor Las Vegas concert.

Aldean took a break from his tour after a gunman fired onto a crowd of people attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. "But it's been really cool to see all the love and support that's been going on over the last 10 days or so because of what happened in Las Vegas".

"These people are going to continue to try to hold us down", Aldean said, voicing hope that Americans will still go about their lives including going to concerts.

"I just want to say thank you guys, because you guys have helped us a ton tonight".

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shootings, New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison assured New Orleans residents that police would be in a "heightened sense of awareness" during upcoming events and that his security forces were working in tandem with New Orleans hotels to prepare for a Las Vegas-style attack.

Since most of his show's equipment was still in Vegas - still part of the crime scene there - Aldean told the crowd that getting the Tulsa show ready had been tough on the band and crew. "And to those people that keep trying to do that, I say (expletive) you, we don't really care". The three traveled from Dallas and wore "Vegas Strong" T-shirts.
