Country star Jason Aldean has returned to Las Vegas a week after a mass shooting during his performance at a music festival left 58 people dead and hundreds more hurt.
University Medical Center of Southern Nevada thanked Aldean on Facebook on Sunday for visiting with survivors. The hospital says Aldean’s visit “helped heal hearts and cheer those who were wounded”.

Aldean’s wife, Brittany, posted a picture of herself and Jason on Instagram looking at the Mandalay Bay resort, where shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd from his hotel room on 1 October.
She wrote in the caption that seeing the strength of victims helped the couple “try to begin the healing process”.
Feels surreal being back in Vegas today. Visiting some of the strongest people we have ever met… fighting the toughest battle of them all… for their lives. You have helped us try to begin the healing process by seeing the strength each one of you have. Thank you for today. We will never forget. #vegasstrong 🙌🏼
The visit came a day after Aldean performed on Saturday Night Live in tribute to the victims.
