J.Lo cancels several dates of her residency show out of respect for the victims and their families after the deadly shooting.
Jennifer Lopez puts a break on her Las Vegas residency show after deadly shooting in the Sin City. She will not perform on Wednesday, October 4, Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7 out of respect for the victims and the families affected by the tragic incident.
“I [love emoji] Las Vegas…feeling so broken this morning,” J.Lo wrote on her social media. She added in a statement that she’s “heartbroken that such a senseless tragedy occurred. Her thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
The 48-year-old singer/songwriter apologized to her fans for any inconvenience. Refunds and exchanges for other “Jennifer Lopez: All I Have” performances will be made available to ticket holders.
J.Lo was not the only stars saddened by the Vegas shooting. The likes of Lady GaGa, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Ellen DeGeneres, John Legend and Ariana Grande also sent prayers and love to the Sin City.
Jimmy Kimmel who grew up in Las Vegas delivered an emotional monologue during his show. “Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy. This time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my home town. Of course, we pray for the victims – and for their families and friends and we wonder why, even though there’s probably no way to ever know why a human being would do something like this to other human beings who were at a concert having fun, listening to music,” he said.
He continued, “I’ve been reading comments from people who say this is terrible but there’s nothing we can do about it and I disagree with that. Of course there is something we can do about it. I don’t know why do our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen? Or maybe a better question – why do we continue to let them allow it to happen?”
He urged the government to implement stricter gun law, “It feels like someone has opened a window into hell. What I’m talking about tonight isn’t about gun control; it’s about common sense. Common sense says no good will ever come from allowing a person to have weapons that can take down 527 Americans at a concert. Common sense says you don’t let those who suffer from mental illness buy gun.”
