Jason Aldean returns to Las Vegas in a grandiose way, headlining three December nights at the relatively intimate Park Theater at Park MGM for his "Ride All Night Vegas" residency.
The Dec. 6-8 shows mark Aldean's first headlining dates in Las Vegas since the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on Oct. 1, 2017 occurred during Aldean's set. Fifty-eight people were killed and more than 400 were injured during the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Not long after the tragedy, Aldean visited Las Vegas to connect with other survivors.
"The hardest thing I've ever done was go to Vegas and visit with a lot of the victims," he said in February during a Country Radio Seminar interview. "I was really glad we went there, but it was tough to sit there and see people who were at our show a few days before. To me, it was gut-wrenching. I felt a responsibility to go there and have some face-to-face time with them and laugh and cry -- whatever they wanted to do."
By returning to the site as a performer, Aldean encourages fans and other artists to overcome fear and spite others' extreme hatred though a shared love of music.
"I've wanted to bring our show back to Vegas for a while now, and the timing feels right," said Aldean in a press release. "We're going to pack up the show, set it up for a couple days and hang out with our Vegas family. I'm looking forward to being back."
For the special occasion, Aldean scales down his stadium show for the 5,200 seat Park Theater. Opening support will be provided by Dee Jay Silver.
