Kenny Chesney mourns the death of one of his fans at his Empower Field concert in Denver, Colorado on Saturday night.

The Denver Post reported that a woman died Saturday night when she fell from an escalator at the end of Chesney’s concert. The Denver Post attributes its news to Denver police and the stadium.

A spokesman for the police explained that the woman was sitting on the rail of the escalator and fell into the hall. The tragic event took place around 10:52 p.m. at the end of Chesney’s concert on Saturday night.

The Denver Post reported that police spokesman Nate Magee did not know the woman’s age, how far she fell or whether she died at the hospital or at the stadium. The woman’s identity has not been revealed.

On Sunday, Magee said he did not know if alcohol was a factor in the fall, but believes the fan was not pushed or shoved. Her death is being investigated as an accident.

On Sunday, Chesney released a statement: “I was devastated to hear of the loss of someone after our show. There was so much joy, so much heart from the people of Denver last night – and to hear this is heartbreaking. Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and the love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words. For the loss of her friends and family, I mourn with them and over them.”

Chesney’s Here And Now Tour, which also includes Carly Pearce, Old Dominion and Dan + Shay, will wrap up its sold-out summer stadium run 26-27. August at Boston’s Gillette Stadium.
Other dates on the tour have included Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, Chicago’s Soldier Field and more.
