Following Sunday night’s (Oct. 1) massacre during a performance by country star Jason Aldean at the Route 91 Harvest Festival at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas—now being called the deadliest such mass shooting in U.S. history—musicians took to social media to express their sorrow.

Aldean’s statement: “Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate”

The festival organizers issued the following statement on Oct. 2:

“On behalf of the entire Route 91 Harvest Family, we are completely devastated by the event that occurred Sunday night. Our deepest sympathies go out to the injured and the deceased and their loved ones, senseless violence has claimed the souls of our fans and we have little in the way of answers.

Our eternal gratitude goes out to the LVPD, Emergency services, security guards, and fans for their selfless acts of bravery while trying to help those in need.

While we will try and move forward, we will never forget this day. We will NOT let hate win over LOVE. We will NOT be defeated by senseless violence.

We WILL persevere, and honor the souls that were lost. Because it matters.
– Route 91 Harvest”

Journey keyboardist, Jonathan Cain…
