Exclusive: Big & Rich’s John Rich Says the Las Vegas Massacre Is “Gonna Change the Way Concerts Happen . . . the Reverberations of It Are Epic”

Big & Rich performed during Day 3 of the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, a short time before a gunman opened fire on the crowd during Jason Aldean’s headlining set, which killed more than 50 people and injured more than 500.

The duo’s John Rich talked to morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck today (Oct. 2) for a segment that is slated to air on Tuesday, Oct. 3. at 5:40 a.m. CT and 8:40 a.m. CT.

In addition to leading the morning show in a prayer, John told hosts Ty Bentli and Kelly Ford that the “epic reverberations” of the Las Vegas tragedy will change the way country music is enjoyed in the future.

“Let me tell you something, this is gonna change the way concerts happen,” said John, in part. “It’s gonna change the way artists look at a concert. It’s gonna change the way fans look at a concert. It’s gonna change the way security operates at a concert. And it’s going to change the way everybody associated with a country music event looks at it. The reverberations of it are epic.”

Tune in to Ty, Kelly & Chuck at 5:40 a.m. CT and 8:40 a.m. CT on Oct. 3 to hear the entire interview.
