The deadly shooting is being called the worst in U.S. History. "I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe", Aldean wrote in an Instagram post in the wake of the shooting.

The tour will resume October 12 in Tulsa, Okla. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Other country music artists took to social media to share their support.

"Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see", he said.

In the press release, Aldean adds apologies to anyone who is disappointed that he has canceled three tour dates, but he hopes that people understand the decision.

Aldean claimed it had been an "emotional time" for everyone involved, so his team is taking a break to mourn the deaths of everyone who passed away.

'At the end of the day we aren't Democrats or Republicans, whites or blacks, men or women. We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! "Just know you all are in my heart and my prayers as we all go through this together", says Aldean. Time to come together and stop the hate!'

The Crazy Town singer also has daughters Keely, 14, and Kendyl, 10, from his first marriage to Jessica Ann Ussery.

Refunds for the San Diego show are available at point of purchase.

Country singer Jason Aldean, who was performing when shots began to ring out in Las Vegas, announced that he will not be returning to the stage this weekend. "At one point, I was crouched down behind a cop vehicle with about 20 other people, that were people who had just come to the show", Owen said in the interview.

ESPN's Monday Night Football and ABC's Monday episode of Dancing With The Stars both opened with a moment of silence for the victims of the tragedy.
