As the death toll for last night's mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas rose to 58 plus more than 500 injured, concert giant Live Nation, co-promoted the annual event along with MGM Grand Resorts, has issued an official statement.
LAS VEGAS (October 2, 2017) – We are heartbroken over the tragedy that took place at the Route 91 Harvest festival. To think that anyone would want to inflict harm on a gathering of music lovers is beyond our comprehension.
And while we are stunned and grieving over this incomprehensible act of violence, we know that this is a moment when we must come together to prevent more tragedies like this from occurring.
Live Nation will do everything in our power to support the victims and their families through the aftermath of this horrendous event and extends our deepest gratitude to the heroic first responders who helped save as many lives as possible. To our Live Nation on-site employees, we cannot thank you enough for your bravery and perseverance over the past 24 hours and will ensure you have the resources and support necessary to heal from this.
