Kenny Chesney is very “devastated” after a fan died falling from an escalator after Chesney’s concert at the Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.
The woman, who is unidentified as yet, fell to the concourse below just before 11 p.m. during Chesney’s latest stop on the “Here and Now” tour on Saturday. The investigation is on the grounds of accidental death, Denver Police Department confirmed to The Post.
“I was devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show,” the “American Kids” hitmaker told The Denver Post in a statement. “There had been so much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver last night — and to hear this is heartbreaking.”
“Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together, and that love we share makes us so much more. The lady who came to share that love. For her friends and family’s loss, I grieve with them and for them”
The Office of the Medical Examiner will release the woman’s identity in the coming days, Denver Police Department told The Post.
Denver police tweeted on Saturday that they were “conducting an outside death investigation” at Empower Field.
“An adult female guest at Empower Field at Mile High was sitting on an escalator railing, fell to the concourse below, and died as a result of the injuries,” they said in a tweet.
“To my understanding, there was none of that, it was just an accidental fall, I don’t think anyone pushed her or anything like that,” police spokesman Nate Magee told the outlet.
