"Stay out of Vegas".

White had wanted Aldean to perform the National Anthem at UFC 216: [Tony] Ferguson vs [Kevin] Lee, a mixed martial arts event in Las Vegas.

University Medical Center of Southern Nevada thanked the "Burnin' It Down" singer for visiting on Sunday in a Facebook that showed their "extreme gratitude".

Country singer Jason Aldean performed an emotional tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting on Saturday Night Live - less than a week after the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

"F- you, Jason Aldean". White claims that Aldean said he might never perform again.

Watch the full clip of his Saturday Night Live performance above.

Aldean is pictured in front with Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot and musician Sam Smith.

The Georgia native was joined by his pregnant wife, Brittany Aldean, who marked their visit with an Instagram photo featuring them embracing in front of the Mandalay Bay, where Paddock shot at concertgoers from the 32nd floor.

A gunman released a flurry of bullets down onto the unsuspecting crowd at the music festival, killing 58 people and wounding over five hundred others in the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

The night before, Jason paid tribute to the victims with a surprise performance of the late Tom Petty's 1989 hit "I Won't Back Down" on "Saturday Night Live".

In what he called one of the worst tragedies in America, Aldean told the SNL crowd that, like many, he was struggling to understand what happened and how to pick up the pieces and start to heal.

'So many people are hurting.

"So many people are hurting and they're our children, parents, brothers, sisters, friends", Aldean said. They're all part of our family.
