Heartbreak and devastation doesn’t begin to describe what the United States is feeling right now after the worst mass shooting in our country’s history…
Las Vegas is a second home to many DJ/producers and other musicians, so it’s nearly unfathomable to hear of what happened at Route 91 Harvest music festival last night. It could have been any show, any concert, any music festival, and any artist on stage. It just so happened that country star Jason Aldean was performing to close out the final night of Route 91 when shots rang out from Mandalay Bay Casino across the street.
Many artists jumped on Twitter to express their love, thoughts, and condolences from across the globe, and for some it hit much closer to their home away from home. Jauz experienced the “fucking nightmare” firsthand and Marshmello cancelled his show at XS Las Vegas last night.
Our hearts go out to those in Las Vegas, and everyone affected.
