"The painful truth is that this year, in just those two events, 81 music lovers just like us went out to enjoy a night of music, and never came back home, with many more injured and still healing". Outside of the Las Vegas shooting, 2017 also saw the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last May.

"As survivors of the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas, we applaud the Recording Academy for using its national platform to honor the lives of gun violence victims and survivors at the Grammy Awards on Sunday", the statement said.

Church headlined the first night of the festival, which was the last night of his tour.

Considering these artists performed at that festival, their tribute was even more poignant.
