Kenny Chesney 'Devastated' After Fan Falls To Death During Denver Show

Kenny Chesney said he was "devastated" after a woman fell from an escalator and died during his concert over the weekend in Denver.

Police on Saturday night said they were investigating a death at Empower Field at Mile High. The Denver medical examiner's office would determine her cause of death and release her name.

On Sunday morning, police said a woman who was a guest at the stadium was sitting on an escalator railing when she fell and plunged to the concourse below. She died of her injuries. Police said they're investigating her death as an accident.

A spokeswoman for police said she fell around 10:50 p.m. Saturday. Police do not believe she was pushed, according to The Denver Post.

The stadium said she died at the end of the concert.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the woman involved in the tragic incident that occurred at the end of Saturday's concert at EMpower Field at Mile High," the stadium said in a statement.

Chesney said in a statement to the Post he was "devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show."

"There had been so much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver last night — and to hear this is heartbreaking," the singer said. "Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and that love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words. For her friends and family's loss, I grieve with them and for them."
