Kenny Chesney says he’s “devastated” after a lady died at his live performance in Denver


Kenny Chesney is speaking out after a woman died at his concert over the weekend.

Chesney was performing Saturday night at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, where a woman fell to her death from an escalator railing. According to the Denver Police Department.

The country superstar released the following statement he received The Denver Post:

“I was devastated when I learned of someone’s loss after our performance. The people of Denver experienced so much joy and so much heart last night — and it’s heartbreaking to hear,” he said in a statement.

“Life is precious. Sharing music brings us closer, and the love we share makes us so much more. There are no words for the woman who came to share that love. For the loss of her friends and family, I grieve with them and for them.

The incident at the stadium happened just before 11 p.m. after Chesney’s concert ended, the Denver Post reported.

An unknown woman “was sitting on the railing of the escalator, fell to the floor below and died from her injuries. This is being investigated as an accidental death,” Denver police said.

Chesney is currently on his “Here and Now” tour, which ends at the end of this month. His next show is Saturday night in Minneapolis.

CNN has reached out to Chesney’s representatives.
