Jason Aldean has canceled upcoming tour dates in California previously scheduled for Oct. 6 (Inglewood’s The Forum), Oct. 7 (Chula Vista’s Mattress Firm Amphitheatre), and Oct. 8 (Anaheim’s Honda Center) as part of the entertainer’s They Don’t Know Tour. The news follows the tragic shootings that occurred during Aldean’s headlining set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday, Oct. 1.

The They Don’t Know Tour will resume on Oct. 12 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Refunds to the shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and Anaheim are available at point of purchase.

Aldean also released the following statement:

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.

Thank You and God Bless.
